Bottle 30 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a cloudy and opaque milky white. Sweet rice aroma. Mouthfeel is strangely grainy sticky, the tiny particles can clearly be felt. Sweet and a little perfumy rice notes. Interesting and not too bad. 151010

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing!
Pours quity milky yellowish colour. Aroma of fresh medium intense fruity melons. Taste is very dry, strong melon notes, not to sweet, some alcohol, nice!

Unclear milky white. Aroma is sweet, cooked rice and alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet. Sweet finish. It’s like having chalk in your mouth. 140412

Danke an Colin. Mild hefig alkoholischer Antrunk. Deutlich hefiger Antrunk, so trüb, dass sich die Trübung im wahrsten Sinne auf den Zähnen absetzt. Sehr süffig, mild fruchtig, Noten von Banane, etwas Mango. Sehr interessant! 10/9/10/9/13/9

Bottle at fonefan tasting. No head. Color is milky white. Aroma and taste are rice, alcohol and has a dry finish. Quite odd.

Pours thick, white...milky and looking like guava juice or soghum beer. Nigori is fun to look at. Aroma of bubblegum, pear, peach, yeast. Smooth palate is sweet, sugary rice with light fruit notes and a hint of tartness late. With nigiri it demonstrates a lively, fruity, milky character. Scores bonus points for drinkability...for something that doesn’t look terribly approachable it sure tastes approachable.
