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...

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.

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.

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 (13469) - 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 (5743) - 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 (4773) - Beloit, Wisconsin, 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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2007
I like this one. It pours out like thick milk with some powder in it, coating the sides of my glass with tiny particles of rice. The aroma is light - a floral bouquet with sweet tropical fruit, pears, and alcohol. Very smooth to drink despite the graininess. It tastes of warm white rice, pears, grass, and alcohol. Warming and tasty.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Aroma that was both floral and tropical. Rice pudding. Some mustiness. Pours milky white with good legs and lots of particulate sticking to the side of the glass. Tart on the palate with a hint of tropical fruit. Dry. Full bodied and very creamy.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Sampled at The Cellar’s Wine & Spirits wine tasting. A terrific unfiltered sake that has a chalky white appearance. When swirling beverage in glass, thick rice particles stick to glass edge. Aroma of hard fruit (sweet apple/pear) light citrus and a hint of coconut and steamed medium grain rice. Taste is strong alcohol, more steamed rice and sweet pear. Long lasting alcohol finish. Don’t even think of serving this warm. This is a chiling sake!
