Clear and still as water.....virtually no colouring.
Rice and grass scent.
Very mild, sweet rice malt taste.
A bit of alcohol, but incredibly smooth.

Bottle. Dry grass and rice malt aroma. Clear - just a hint of yellow. Sweet creamy rice malt, alcohol, and grass flavor. Nice body. Pleasant.

14%ABV. Ginjo Sake
Nose had some sweet rice cakes. There was a very subtle funk to the nose with aroma of fresh steamed rice cakes made with fermented rice flour. There was a nutty sweetness to the nose as well suggesting chestnuts and dried acorns. There was an overall clean candy nose.
Mouthfeel was watery and alcoholic. The palate which was dominated by alcohol and given a mildly warming of the throat was brief followed by the following flavors: sweet rice gruel, a fruity slightly citrus flavor with mild bitterness suggesting yuzu and yuzu peel. Some fruity sweetness with a slightly rich and decadent flavor like fresh persimmons.
Clean finish and palate. ruigo (2943) - PORTUGAL - JUL 6, 2015

Good one eRock_2013 (468) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Served chilled fresh from an unopened bottle, this Sake pours perfectly clear and smooth, impressive. Smell is faint and clean, fresh sweet aroma. The taste is mildly sweet, subtly a bit fruity, but also allows the grainy rice flavor to come through. Also what I suppose is the yeasty taste of koji. I enjoy this flavor profile over the gekkeikan junmai ginjo I sampled previously, which was a bit too sweet. However, I was bit disappointed that the taste was not more flavorful, could've been stronger. At any rate, seemed to be an authentic Japanese offering.
