Tmoney99 (11690) - 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

BeerandBlues2 (10607) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours milky, cloudy white, translucent. Aroma is sweet rice, soft fruits, and spicy alcohol. Flavor is sweet rice, bright with soft pear notes, and lightly peppery alcohol. Full body.

3fourths (8496) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Bottle. Milky white pour, thick particles sticking to the sides of the glass. Nose is mild banana and cream, some milky pear, some herbs and some strange sort of pineapple character. First few sips are full, chewy and then gritty on the back, punctuated by an incredibly unpleasant bite as it is swallowed. Harsh and husky rice, more banana, pear, green apple, some creamy vanilla ice cream but also some sour lactic notes. The unpleasant bite subsides and nearly disappears towards the bottom of the glass.

BMan1113VR (7898) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours milky with particles of rice left on the side of the glass. Aroma is strong of alcohol, with rice hulls and koji, coconut and banana aromas. Pretty sweet smelling. Flavor is marred by a clotted cream texture with coconut mill alcohol and buttery sweetness. No balance, alcohol is evident.

b3shine (6379) - Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle to snifter (shared with ther Mrs.). Looks good for a nigori; a still, cloudy, skim milky off-white. Smells solid; alcohol and creme. Tastes like it smells, but slightly less robust. Smooth on the palate. An enjoyable sake.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Pours a very cloudy, grainy off white after being mixed up. Smells of vanilla, rice, aome sweet hints, boozy. Tastes grainy and sweet and fruity with a nice vanilla bite on the finish. I’m really digging Nigori sake!

jredmond (6060) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Bottle shared with Linh, and Caroline @ her party. Pours a thick milky pink body. Aroma is light fruit, light booze, and milk. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with notes of light fruit, light alcohol, and creme. A Good sake.

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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle: Pours a milky white color with smaller particles and thin legs. The nose is musky with some dry concrete and mineral notes; abundant alcohol and a very dry light banana hint. The flavor has a large impact, but it comes off more minerally and lightly fruity, the alcohol is hidden fairly well as it’s a bit sweet in the mouthfeel. A subtle brief tail with a more prominent acidic finish. As a general non-fan of nigoris, this is no exception.
