Pours a light yellowish tinge...slightly cloudy. Smells like....sake. There are some sweet milk chocolate aromas and flavours. But the booze is more prevelant than any other flavours.

Pours a cloudy white. The aroma is that of spiced milk. This is a food saki through and through. The silk and banana pronounce themselves when indulging in spicy and salty food. The rice base helps calm down spicier food yet this saki still has a great characteristic on it’s own. Have with food and be super pleased!!!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Glows a white glow. smells of stinky funk, maybe a bit grassy and some alcohol too. Flavors arent sweet but are a bit bitter...lacking in any tangible fruit notes unfortunately..not sweet either...just kind of bitter fungus...nothing really sticks...just kind of a messy alcoholic fungus. damn it...I was reading ratings while i purchased this and the higher rating people freaking lied, especially about the sweetness, which this lacks altogether...and it really needs some sweetness to round out that funky alcoholic fungus deathtrap. This really isnt enjoyable in any way...The bitterness is completely off puting...rather expensive too.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, room temp. Pours a murky yellow, unpleasant hue with a few particles. Looks like something a man (well at least most men) would not want to drink. Aroma is sweet withe koji, banana, alcohol and vanilla. Fusel alcohol on the taste, sweet with almonds, nutty, koji. Not super balanced. some umami. Syrupy mouthfeel.
