a clear color with a light aroma sweet rice and a vaguely nutty character. A surprisingly potent flavor with citrus undercurrents and a light nuttyness a light finish with smooth body. j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle shared with my wife. Pours rather clear with a soft yellow tinge to it. Sticky sweet rice with a bit of banana and old melon behind it. Medium bodied, sweet rice porridge and warm melon. Warming alcohol and light sweetness on the finish. Warm and smooth. porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 18, 2008
(300 ml bottle from 1828 Vintage House) Served lightly chilled. Poured clear as water. Aroma of rice, yeast and alcohol. Wine-like mouthfeel, lightly dry. Legs/lacing consist of droplets along inside of glass. Flavor is quite hot and yeasty, on the sweet side with a strong fermented rice taste. Maybe even a touch bready. I enjoyed it more cooler than warmer. Feels quite refined but quite potent! Seems like a better than average sake.

300 ml bottle. My first experience with Sake. It pours quite clear with just a touch of cloudyness, could be the cold temp at which it was drank. Our waiter suggested to drink it with a few slivers of cucumber in our glass. This gave it a bit of freshness added with the smooth rice and alcohol flavors. Quite good, I am stil not sold on drinking Sake over beer, but something a little different Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Pours clear with a gold tint. Smells of rice and alcohol with some fruitiness present. Tastes sweet and boozy. Easy drinking. dchmela (3088) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Gold flake version. Clear pour with yellowish hint and gold flakes floating about. Grainy rice, koji, banana and melon comes through in the aroma. Much the same in the taste, but banana and melon are much stronger in the flavor. Smooth body, decent sake. willblake (2664) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2005
08.15.05 Just a dew drop away from colorless, light legs slickly run down the cup. Mild fruit, more like a wet grain; and slightly stale smelling like water that’s been sitting too long in a pitcher. Flavor is warm and tropical with some hints of a chile spiciness. Thank goodness the flavor pulled through what was an otherwise a odd aroma. Still a somewhat stale finish, dry, again followed by a reemergence of coating and slick fruit. Given the ABV, I think the heat level is entirely appropriate. It’s a lot of flavor to come out of something so clear. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Bottle: Clear color with no legs. The nose is full bodied with a light grainy character, light alcohol and a bit of dusty koji, no sweetness or melon yummyness which I like. The flavor is rich with good umami and a nice feel on the palate. Semi-sweet with a buttery finish a light alcohol feel. Extended tail. I can see what they’re going for but it’s missing something.
