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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours clear in color with just a touch of carbonation to it. There is a strong anise aroma with some apple juice, vanilla, graham cracker, and butterscotch. It’s lightly fruity with some hints of green melon. The flavor is quite off-putting to me. Heavy butterscotch sweetness, alcohol, and melon. Light vinegar on the finish. Sort of a medicinal flavor all around.
