3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Cunningham - thank you so much, Henrik! The sake pours out in a vanilla-rose colour with smooth body. Aroma of coconut and pineapple. Taste of lychee juice, coconut and peaches. I really missed the sake taste and found it a little bit too girly - but otherwise really drinkable and nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sample @ RBNG-14. Water-like clear body. Aroma is lychee, rice, coconut, faint fusel tones and hints of alcohol. Taste is lychee, mild rice, coconut, marzipan and mild fruity tones. Smooth body, pretty light. Sweet, but half-decent enough.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks like water. When you drink it, you notice that it is completely different from water. Not the ususal basement sake either. I can recommend this one! Coconuts and fruity aroma. Mid bodied. Very flat and a balanced sweetness. Pleasant fruity, nutty and oily.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Looks like water. Yay. Sweet sugary aroma of coconut suntan oil and fruit cocktail. Heavy sweet taste with more sugary fruity cocktail. Might work as a liqueur substitute.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Chriso’s pre-GBBF Shindig. Light gold with a small head. The aroma’s toasted shredded coconut, lychee fruit jellies, tropical fruit starburst. The taste is more lychee, tropical fruits. Nice fragrant perfume accents. Pleasantly smooth, light body. Overall, pretty sweet. I liked this as a change of pace.
