Poured like a spirit, clear, off white with no head. Aroma of sweet alcoholic rice. Little body, flavour of slightly sweet green tea. Far closer to a spirit than beer.

Clear to be sure, poured warm but not hot into a large-ish snifter to coax some aromas out. Soft white wine, diffused rice, light grain, aroma is perfectly reasonable. Taste is minimal rice, smoothness, and a bit of warming. Unintrusive. Not bad considering the low price.

My first sake, so not exactly sure what to expect here. 75cl bottle. Completely clear liquid without any head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, melon and alcohol. Tastes like solvent and terpentine. Absolutely abhorrent taste. Never again.

Bottle courtesy of Erzengel (euro local swap 4/2016), many thanks! My first sake! Not sure I’m a fan though, it’s alcoholic and somewhat watery, light solvent notes and melon.

Flaske 750ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Sentrum. Drukket i hyggelig selskap under Storflaskesesjon på Nerstranda 5 Nov 16. Ser ut som vann. Forbausende lett & tynn. Kanskje litt krydder - og alkoholen er bortevekk.

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing!
Pours clear water, no colour, no head. Aroma of sweet fruits, glue, alcohol. Taste of sweet fruits, rice, yest, warmy alcoholic finish.

750ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Troms? Sentrum. Clear water-like appearance, no head, no lacing. Subdued smell of sweet ripe fruits. Dry rise and fruits to the taste buds, sweet ending with a spicy touch. Not my kind of drink (Big bottle session with Stefan, Elisabeth, Finn and Jan Erik 05.11.2016).
