210ml green tinged ECO cup from Japan Centre online. Pours a milky white colour with no head and aroma of rice, light citric. Taste is rice, coconut milk, sweetish, pineapple, citrus, with hints of glue, paper, alcohol. Creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, low carbonation, dry sweetish finish. Quite OK.

Sweet and fruity. The sediment was different and did not help the beer, but it didn’t take away from the taste; it was just different, but it made my tongue feel weird. This was purchased on clearance and I could see why.

Bottle. Off-white, cream color with substantial sediment. Citrus aroma with some coconut notes. Sweet citrus with some coconut notes. A lot of sediment in the body they distracts a bit from the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nickls (2417) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2016
Bottle. Pours looking like skimmed milk. Pear, sweet rice, some slight Conor alcohol in the aroma. Flavor is mild, but slight sour fruit, sweet pear, and light fruits. Lighter soft body. I’m a sake a noob but this drinks pretty good to me.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2016 (Bouteille): Des amandes affaiblies, des notes de lactose, de la sueur et quelques vapeurs d’alcool. Assez docile sur l’intensité des saveurs.

300 ml bottle bought at ParkNShop Superstore in Fanling.

Cloudy, hazy coconut milky light beige colour mixed with lots of sake rice particles; Fragrant aroma of glutinous rice wine, with rich rice soup, mashed pear fresh, coconut milk, sugar, shredded coconut, fruity ester and alcohol; Medium sweet taste of sake rice, with strong glutinous rice soup, rice particles, moderate tartness, strong starch, pear puree, alcohol and sugar; Medium body, Thick and starchy rice palate; Mouth feel is like a rice porridge infused coconut milk. Sake tartness is very notable and the strongest I’ve had so far for the style. Sweeteness is right-on medium, not cloying at all. Rice particles are coarse, more like having porridge, and with notable but never sharp booze more akin to a Winter Warmer, this is a bit messy but strangely appealing. I like it!... Wet after taste; Starchy and nicely sweet to mouth.

Comments: Once you have so many finely-grinded Nigoris, this is a whole new experience for enjoying the style - a look which resembles Summer coconut drink, coarse rice particles, rich starchy to the tongue, just right sweetness and smart tasty booze that won’t knock you off. This is hearty and easily enjoyable. Recommended!

In the bottle, a milky white, separated. Shaken it’s a milky, yellowish-white concoction. The aroma is sweet light fruit, flowers, coconuts. The flavor is sweet fruit, coconut, rice. Not really boozy. Really "mushy" in mouthfeel, lots of particuates, like sand, or powder. Medium/thick in body. Sake is not my thing normally, but I enjoyed this. If I was a sake guy, I would probably be more entitled to an opinion, but I actaully liked this.
