Courtesy boboski. Served chilled. Clear, with faint, pale yellow hues. Aroma is sweet, floral, and yeasty. Sweet, rice syrup background in the flavor with floral highlights, dough, and faint citrus. Slick, full mouthfeel that is a bit cloying. Smooth swallow with a clean finish. Alcohol does not interfere. Nice, but I found to be a bit too sweet. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Sample from a Sake Flight at Fuji Jade Garden, State College, PA. This was interesting. Aroma carried a lightly phenolic or ester profile, as if in a Belgian yeast sense. Pours clear. In the mouth, this becomes more distinct, with some minerals, peppery notes, lemon rind and brandy-like mature fruit. This is all veiled by a heavy sugar content. This is dense and strong. Finishes on plum ripeness. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2009
0.72 litre bottle bought at the brewery in Kyoto. Pale straw colour. Mild, slightly sweet and yeasty aroma. Peppery flavours, with some dark fruit, very warming alcohol, bready yeastiness. More powerful in the mouth. Cloying mouthfeel, hints of graininess. Nice complexity, starts soft, but soon shows a tougher side. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle: clear, no legs. The nose is light but very dusty, like wiping off an old shelf into your face, along with that, there’s some apple and kiwi notes. The flavor is clean, mellow impact and a very brief tail. Minimul umami and a touch of alcohol. Good but disappointing for a junmai daiginjo. dchmela (3064) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Glass at Japanese Pavillion at Epcot. Pours clear with a hints of yellow. Aroma is rice, yeast and melon aroma. Taste is chewy rice, yeast and more fruit notes. Really nice.

Bottle @ home (300mL) picked up at Wilbur’s for $14.99. New sake style tick and a point in RBSH3. Pours a very clear, just a touch yellow tinted appearance with no head. Sweet green apple, pear, sticky rice, a touch candy-like aroma. A little bland and watery but very smooth. A touch of booze on the finish but mostly just a light apple/pear, slightly grassy flavor. High boost. Gehbe (444) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - NOV 28, 2016
Aroma of apple, mellon, apricot, raisins, dough, light spicy notes. Medium sweetness on first notes, followed by light sourness and hints of bitterness on finish. Medium body, nice warmer. labeerinthum (871) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 14, 2017
Bevuto freddo (temperatura consigliata). Il gusto al naso come aroma dominante si concentra sul riso e come aromi secondari riconosce melone e frutta. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. L’aspetto del liquido è velato. Il corpo è strutturato, con una struttura cremosa. L’aroma alla lingua è leggermente secco. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevolissimo. Il finale è lungo, pulito e complesso. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di melone, banana, frutta, pera, mela verde e acqua di sorgente. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle poor at Japanese restaurant in Chevy Chase, MD. Clear as weater. Nose is of rice and floral notes. Clean and easy to drink. Dry in the finish. Enjoyable.
