Beer5000 (8163) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2019 Bottle backlog April 2013. Clear like water with a slightly oily body. Light in aroma, slightly alcoholic with fusel, hint of yeast and almond. Nice but a bit weak. Taste is warming, mild alcohol, light rice, hint of citric fruit, yeast and rather distinct umami. Medium body and volatile aftertaste as it should be. Mild but pleasant tasting sake.

VDuquerroux (3123) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - MAY 5, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2019 Friday, May 3, 2019. Bottle, 180mL. 14.5%. Purchase ('Géant Casino', Chauray (79), FR). Home. Also shared with my dad. First sake ever ! Clear watery sake. Floral white-winy mineral smell. In the mouth, oddly flat, mineral, old fruity notes (pear-apple?), light alcohol. Light sweet, average fresh dry windy, light warming background. Medium body, watery texture, flat, sweet dry strong short finish. Overall, enjoyable. First sake ; surprised : so flat, no depth, light fresh white wine mineral character.

Drake (16406) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2018 Bottle shared by hershiser2. Clear, nearly colorless. Aroma of green apple, rice, floral notes. Taste is sweet rice, apple skins, glue, smoke. Medium bodied.

hershiser2 (6072) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2018 $9.99 bottle from Market Street Wine. Pours clear like water, no hint of a hue here. Aroma is rice, glue, light coconut. Flavor is booze, light rice, glue. No lingering finish. Meh.

tgncc (3176) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2018
Crystal clear like water. Faint fruity aroma. Lower intensity aroma than standard sake. Flavor follows. Slightly boring. Enjoyable still. Leaves little on the palate. Decent.

Rotin (3645) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 31, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2018 Bottle 180ml, trade with Camons, many thanks, René! Clear. AROMA- sweet fruity, litchi, pear, apple, alcohol. FLAVOR- lightly sweet, fruity again, pear, touch of litchi, warming alcohol.

Holmen2 (6199) - NORWAY - JAN 26, 2018
Shared bottle at RB/HD at Bjørnøy 26.01.18. Clear as water. No head. Strong aroma of peach wine gum. Worse and terrible and worse than grappa. Awful!

Holmen1 (9523) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2018
0,72 flaske på RBHD-samling, Bjørnøy jan-18: helt klar, nesten fargeløs og uten antydning til skum. Lys og lett aroma og smak med diskrete hint av aprikoser, grønne druer og gule epler. Mild og farlig på samme tid, siden den er nesten er som utvannet eplejuice i avslutningen.

Sigmund (9915) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2017
720 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 15 to 16%. Clear and colourless, like water, no carbonation. Aroma of alcohol and steamed rice, hints of mushroom and marzipan. Alcoholic flavour, notes of rice and moonshine. Tokubetsu was a new sake style for me, and another evidence that sake is just not my thing.

Camons (17640) - Hasselager, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2017
Bottle @ Home. Pours clear as water. Aroma of boiled rice, wild rice rind, light sweetness, almond, mild fruit, hints of orange. Flavor is light sweet, rice, wild rice rind, light fruit, almond, little alcohol. Medium body, light oily mouthfeel, no carbonation, light sweet finish with little alcohol. Compared to the rather mild flavors the 14,5% ABV alcohol is surprisingly little noticeable. 221017
