3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small bottle international grocery indianapolis IN. Pours light yellow which just reminds of fresh pee. Aromas are more assuring putting off alcohol, light bitter berry, slight corn, light ricey. Flavors medium to high sweet berry, alcohol, light rice and a slight maize aftertaste like beer! Its more complex than a basic sake as there is only one main ingredient. The berry flavor is
a nice little change from regular sake and lager lovers might appreciate the corn aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.375l bottle. Well, it definitely smells a lot this. Really fruity and you get the aroma of red sweet strawberries, fermented peaches, rice, starch and a faint acidity lurking in the back. Quite unique and really fruity. Quite nice also I have to say. It has a pale golden looks with a little red mixed in making it almost red rust water colored. No head. Yeah, it’s definitely fruity in the taste also! Really warming as well. Both sweet but most sour in a way. Old sour apricots and sour green plums. Slightly sugary and as mentioned really warming. Not something I can drink lots of in one setting, but accompanied by birthday sushi this was actually quite nice. 21.07.2014

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle… This sake rocks!… Clear straw-colored sake with a Rosé tint and Cameron Diaz/Angelina Jolie legs. The bouquet provides some really nice apricot, apple and plum esters. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is very fruity – an assortment that I just can’t quite identify - and grassy. Finishes sweet, tart and fruity. Ultra complex. This world class bottle of sake was generously provided by SHIG!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a clear with a hue of pink, there is no head. Aroma is pungent of sour fruit. Taste is sweet with fruit and yet has a grain rice touch to it. I like the way it sticks to the palate. Very nice!

375 ml bottle, and the restuarant was Minh Suk Chung. This was very refreshing and went down smooth. Some hints of peach and maybe some nectarine. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle at Korean restaurant I cannot pronounce or spell. Fruity and floral aromas and very similar flavors, only the flavors were much less subtle. Nice drinkablity. I found myself really enjoying this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance is peach colored wine. Most dominant aroma was soy sauce, but there were other more subtle aromas that I could tell where there, I just could not identity them. Flavor was fairly nice, peach and floral with some light alcohol. I enjoyed this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ok, this is my first sake rate, so bear with me. I also think that this is perhaps a remarkable specimen to be my first- sorta like losing your virginity to a super model- Jill Goodacre anyone? So, very pretty opaque pink color, almost rosey. Nose was hard to pin down- I keep trying to think in beer terms, and I don’t think they apply very well to something this delicate. I got a hint of citrus and strawberry. The palate was similiar to me of champagne. The alcohol was very hidden. A nice dry finish. I will seek out a bottle of this and sit and sip it alone, by myself, with no one to bother me.
