NAMA SAKE is a draft-style sake that is purified not by heat pasteurization but rather through micro-filterization. Since high temperatures can often change the subtle flavors of sake, this micro-filterization process better retains all of the original flavors of sake. "Nama " means fresh, indicating that it is bottled immediately after production rather than being aged for a few months like our other sakes.

Bottle. Pours clear with a faint yellow tinge. A bit of soft banana, warm rice. Medium bodied, soft rice and a bit of isopropyl. Warm and full of rice. A touch of melon, a bit astringent. Decent enough.

Bottle at a local sushi place. Very pale yellow color. Slightly fruity aroma with some alcohol. Fruity flavor with a bit of booze.

Cunningham (8282) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2016
Looks a bit like water with a hint of lime onboard. Moderate and decent aroma. Not the heavy basement and rice stuff. Medium body. Well masked alcohol. Fruity, rice, citric and some basement in the flavor.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order in Sweden]

(Bouteille provenant de Holiday Wine Cellar): Chocolat blanc, sésame, anis et une présence assez iodée. Le corps est pesant et riche. Gagne vraiment à respirer.

Koji, cocoa, caramel nose. Crystal clear, pale greenish yellow hue. Honeydew and cocoa. Rubber finish. Light body, alcohol not noticed at all. Very enjoyable.

Bottle - mostly clear with a subtle yellow tint, good sake flavor with some mild fruitiness in it, fuller body finish, pretty good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oh my, a Sake that isn’t completely white as there is a small yellow tinge, how is this possible (joking.) Aroma of vanilla and almonds and the taste is the same with an alcoholic kick and the end. The nut flavor at the end balances this well. My favorite from this Sake brewer, but then again that is not saying much. A bit different from most Sakes.

Bottle. Clear extremely pale yellow color. Aroma has floral banana. Taste is fruity, light. Not bad.

First sake. Poured from a cold bottle. Very clear liquid with a very subtle hint of yellow. Smells like fruit and plum. Slight grain flavor, plum and alcohol flavors. I don’t have a base for rating, there for I will rate off of personal likes.

DrewFace (969) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pour is clear, still, and light yellow color. Warm rice aroma with alcohol. Flavor is slightly vegetal and warming alcohol.
