Clear water like color, no head, thick legs on the glass wall. Sweet, pear, some alcohol, fresh scent. Sweet, alcohol, pear taste. Warming alcohol. Medium mouthfeel, no bitterness. Pleasant finish.
It pours clear with a slight greenish tint. The aroma has notes of: green apples, wet-dirt, and alcohol. The taste is light sweet that finishes dry and tart; there are notes of: apples, alcohol, and almond (finish). The palate is medium bodied, with a slight unpleasant astringency , oily, with a medium finish. Overall, it’s alright. KyotoLefty (10718) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 14, 2010
One cup can. Fruity, spicy, gingo-ka aroma, lots of fruit. Estery, sweet flavor with peaches, peppery and a bit hot from the alcohol. Tasty and light. A quality ginjo tasting and smelling just at it should. dchmela (3085) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Clear pour with hint of yellow. Light fruit aroma, pear melon and anise popping through. Taste is Anise, rice and yeast with touches of fruit. Good.

Bottle listed as Dewazakura Oka Ginjo (15-16%). Pours with a clear, monotone body with some legs. Aroma of pear, melon and cherry, a bit of honey. Decently sweet, very fruit forward. Flavor is also sweet, with melon and then . . . what, half way through a sip, I get a strong "very cheap" vodka flavor (think sub $10 for a 1.75L cheap vodka taste). Alcohol is shockingly evident for how clean this smells and how good the first part of the sip tastes. A bit of nail polish and fusel. This alcohol character otherwise ruins a pleasantly fruit forward ginjo. I was thinking of picking up their daiginjo and sparkling, but might hold off after having this one. hombrepalo (1972) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Sampler @ Lux Sushi Andersonville. Cherry Blossom? REally a nice Sake, Poured as all other sakes clear semi thick transparent wter looking annd cold. Smell is citrus, berries and alcohol. Anise taste and berries. Finish is a bit rough, probably the alcohol at 15%. pretty good. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Taste @ Ichiza, Las Vegas: Crystal clear color with good legs. The nose is bright with anise and herbal citrus notes. Mild impact and a sweeter pleasant taste due to the lower acidity. Very little alcohol notes and the anise smell lingers on well into the tail. Brief finish and a well rounded overall sake. I could drink this all day. A little dry in the distant tail, but it’s nice and makes you want more. I love it! Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008
Clear, very very pale. Sweet, bright apple, pear, and plum and watermelon candies. Alcohol burn. Kailunkat (8) - Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2008 does not count
Huge melon and floral aroma. Very clean and light taste with subtle melon. Smooth and light. Would be great on a warm summer day.
