This pretty cobalt blue bottled sake from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind an uncarbonated hazy milky thin colored body. The strong aroma was of vinous polished rice. The vinous mouth feel was tingly and vinous at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a vinous aftertaste that ended in a typical Sake vinous alcohol bite. The flavor contained notes of polished rice in a vinous alcohol noticeably strong finish yet one that was not of the typical burning alcohol one expects from a Sake. The second glass was noticeably more milky after being shook up with a much thicker milkier palate. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
Bottle at Snowbird. White body with no head. Apples and fruits in the aroma. Taste is caramel and flavor. Alcy. Well balanced. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2016
500ml. Pours a murky milky white. Mild apricot, muskmelon, and green apple nose, very pleasant and lots of character. Cantaloupe, apricot, and green apple mid palate. Light finish. chucklemation (1764) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2015
First time rating sake here. Pours a milky white. Aroma is tropical fruits, almost like pina colada but not quite. Flavor is boozy tropical fruits and rice. I like it. DuffMan (10667) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle. So, once again I will say up front that I am no sake connoisseur, but I’ll give it a go. Turbid, colloidal white with medium viscosity. Aroma is sweet, both fruity and...something else, grainy?... with boozy undertones. Wow, very dense creamy mouthfeel. Quite starchy, with apple fruit undertones and a very boozy finish. I’m not sure where this stands in the Nigori spectrum, but there was enough here to be interesting. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Pour is very cloudy white pour with no head, still, aroma is fruit, some slight rice, hints of booze, touch of green apple. Taste was sweet white fruits, grape, some rice, booze, touch of apple, finishing slightly boozy. Pretty decent, on the sweeter side.

Milky coconut milk type appearance. Coconut milk type aroma too incidentally, sweet. Thick creamy mouthfeel. 18% alcohol shows down the throat but doesn’t detract, not much on the tongue. Flavor is sweet and creamy, some fruitiness, then all suddenly interrupted by alcohol. I enjoyed the ’substance’ this sake had. SpringsLicker (3677) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 31, 2015

One of my favorites! Love the unfiltered fuller, more complete flavor of this local sake Steve_0 (3818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pour from bottle at Yama. Pour is milky white with no head and good legs. Savory, bitter, green apples, banana, and caramel in the aroma. Taste is sweet caramel corn, rich bitter, green apples, pears, and tangy with a him of alcohol on the backend. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Not bad.
