porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 3, 2009
(300 ml bottle (stamped "02/08") from Belfast Co-op, served chilled and shaken) Pours milky grayish white - has the appearance of water in which you have just cleaned a paintbrush. Aroma is sweetish and milky, along with rice. Mouthfeel is lightly rough-ish and grainy, also a bit chalky. Lacing consists of a milky whitish haze along inside of glass. Flavor is fairly sweetish and milky along with fermented rice and alcohol. Bit of a chalky antacid quality that detracted. Fairly nice but I didn’t dig this as much as the nigori from Ozeki.

what to do when when i can’t sleep, can’t stand the talking heads on the tv right now, can’t stand a lot of things really. so i think it is time for a nice sake, that should go well with my sausage and eggs this morning. thick milky white body, that is nice and gritty, hell maybe i should cook some grits too, grits is good afterall. nah, i’ll hit the grits tomorrow when i can’t sleep, so i have that going for me. sweet herbal, not quite mint aroma with a nice boozey scent. oh yeah this is tasty light sweet fruit and some banana, grape nots a bit of popsicle stick and a lingering light nutty taste. great mouthfeel, that i like from the unfiltered ones, the alcohol is well blended in this. a bit of a hubba bubba flavor lingers in there that detracts a bit but this woill still be a repeat purchase.

Appearance of watered down milk. Aroma of rice and a bit of wood. A little coconut in the taste. Strong rice and light mold. Excellent.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2008
Pour is opaque milky white...smell is marzipan, alcohol, and light yeast...creamy mouthfeel...taste is coconut milk like and sweet with hot alcohol....sweet sugary rice flavors...like Minute Rice that you throw some butter and raw sugar into...good, but not great...

nick76 (4253) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2008
The aroma is ricey with yeast, dirt, and bananas. The appearance is hazy white. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is chalky. This is drinkable but nothing special.

Palidor19 (2989) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Let me just say that this is not my first Nigori sake, but there is nothing about this that I like, it taste too astringent, and its too thick with its flavor. I cant get back this.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Shit, this is cloudy as hell.... Looks like sperm. Aroma is hot as hell. Smells really similar to a smooth nail polish remover. Taste is milky and smooth with a lot of alcohol.

Tmoney99 (10986) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Chilled pink bottle from Grapes of Mirth. Poured cloudy white color with sticky particle legs. Moderate coconut, candy almonds and melons aroma. Medium body with a creamy unfiltered texture. Medium pineapple, vanilla and coconut rice flavor with a medium creamy sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met with a complex sake

JK (4587) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Great presentation with the pink bottle. Pours cloudy and leaves a thick residue on the glass. I really like the appearance and palate. Mild fruit and subdued alcohol. Quite smooth, and a little sweet. I’m not sure how to best rate sake yet, but this is my favorite so far.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 23, 2007
300 ml bottle from City Market in Burlington, VT (October 2007), served chilled and shaken in a White Winter Winery glass. Milky, opaque/opalescent in color, still with a fair amount of chalky residue in the glass...aroma is of overripe pears, a touch of vanilla, cherry blossoms and bubblegum, quite sweet but inviting and complex....thick, milk-shake like texture to the body, sweet and sugary at first but alcohol hardness does creep in a bit....touches of white chocolate along with a ripe/cooked fruit sugariness slowly fade into a drier grainy character at the end....alcohol becomes somewhat strong but never really problematic as it warms; this was definitely best when very cold. Probably not something I will drink often; it’s a bit too thick and even pasty; but nice overall.
