UPDATED: SEP 28, 2019 I picked this sake up at a local asian food supermarket. I wanted to give something a try and went with this as it was made locally and had a decent price point. I ended up picking the small bottle just to try it. I was REALLY impressed with it. It had great fruit notes, a nice complex flavor profile, sweet but not cloyingly sweet or overpoweringly sweet. I could taste a lot of different layers of flavor in the sake, so I was very happy. Also, it felt like the sake tasted better when it was cooler, i'll probably go with a large size bottle next time and keep it in the fridge to refill my glass. archagon (1) - - JUL 17, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2018 US-made, quite good. Smooth, clean, fruity. Not overly boozy despite the high ABV. weihenweizen (5895) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2018
Refrigerated 300 ml black ceramic bottle. Completely clear with no head. Aroma is nice malt, medium body, no carbonation, and no lacing. Taste is light grain, some rice, and a little alcohol. Not my thing. Ferris (23112) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 23, 2016

(Bouteille provenant d’un Cost Plus World Market): Du riz très parfumé, coco, vinaigre et vanille. L’éthanol est bien présent, le corps moyennement liquoreux, très asséchant, on sent bien la puissance du liquide. Longue chaleur dans le palais et impression de pureté réussie.

Bottle. Clear with slight yellow color. Sweet rice aroma with some alcohol present. Sweet rice and hints of fruit. Smooth and a bit syrupy with some alcohol burn in the finish.

Genuinely impressed by this. A lovely surprise. A mixture of sweet rice, tartness and dry yeast. I’m not too familiar with sake but this is the best one I’ve had. Travlr (30304) - No fixed abode, South Dakota, USA - FEB 26, 2015
