Bottle. Pours a clear gold-green with no visible bubbles or anything else for that matter. Nose is stone fruit, almonds, acetone, and a slight medical/iodine note. Dry and sharp on the tongue, with definite medicinal notes; some stone fruit and melon, but mostly crisp and acidic. Finish is warm and edgy. Prickly.

GTAEgeek (1584) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Sample at Kroger. Clear and colorless. Nose is white bread and ethanol, with a touch of juniper and not much else. Sweet and bready flavor, with a slight bite. Light body, a little burn, and otherwise clean. This is an uneventful and boring sake. Not bad, just not much going on.

Clear maybe a slight cloudiness. Sweet banana like flavoured penicillin I had as a child. Taste is a creamy smooth sweetness. Not bad for a Junmai.

(bottle - 330 ml) Clear water pour. Light fruity aroma. Some pear and banana. Very sour and fermented. Light pear flavor but is completely overpowered.

330 ml bottle from Michael’s Liquor Store in Riverhead, NY. Pours a clear very pale straw gold with no head. This is still. The aroma is rice with a touch of fruitiness to it and some alcohol vapors that have a bit of an industrial quality to it. Hard to explain really but its not just straight alcohol vapors that I am getting. The flavor is quite nice actually with more of a brown rice flavor than white rice, a touch of nuttiness, and light caramel sweetness. Smooth and silky on the palate, although there is some noticeable alcohol heat towards the finish. Medium bodied. Enjoyable.

Airplane glue, honey dew, and strong koji nose, in that order. Crystal clear and yellowish. Medium body, hot. Flavor is very much like airplane glue, but non-viscous. Definitely not quaffable, but what sake is?

onceblind (6064) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Clear with a very very faint straw yellow tone. Aroma is kinda weird. Its got some fusel alcohol notes alongside some artificial banana notes, a touch of bubblegum, canteloupe, and rice grain. Flavor is still and light with a watery body. Zero booziness except for in the beginning, there is this light fruity astringency with a melon/rice/artificial-banana flavour that I wasnt particularly fond of. Flavored alcoholic water.

A nice pale yellow body, clear. Aroma was mainly of alcohol, notes of rice and pear. Flavor was well balanced and similar to the aroma. Alcohol was somewhat strong. Very dry on the finish. Nice, but left a little something to be desired. Alcohol may have hidden some of the softer flavors.
