Holmen1 (6123) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2017
Ombord på Fridtjofen, på slipp på Tau, 30cl flaske med skrukork (gave fra Sigmund) delt med skibsrederen: helt klar lys strågul, som sitronbrus. Vemmelig aroma som minner om særdeles mislykket hjemmebrent (gummisolusjon, neglelakkfjerner osv). Smaker heldigvis bedre, med milde lyse frukter, f.eks lychee og sitron. Ingen karbonering. Slapp ettersmak og varmende alkohol i magen. En engangsopplevelse, heldigvis. Holmen2 (3850) - NORWAY - SEP 1, 2017
Bottle shared with JMD on board Fridtjofen at Tau slipp og båtbyggeri 01.09.17. Clear pale yellow. No head. Appaling aroma of burnt rubber and aceton. Taste is like badly made and oxidised home-made wine from box. Perhaps an aquired taste? Sigmund (7756) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2017
Opened 300 ml green screwcap bottle, from a trade with Cunningham. ABV is 15%. Clear and extremely pale yellow colour, no carbonation. Strong aroma of burnt rubber, awful. Alcoholic flavour with hints of rice. Another evidence that sake is not my cup of tea. obguthr (6530) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2016
Honey and koji nose with kind of a sweaty jock strap aspect. Clear and yellowish. Honey, grain alcohol, subtle cantaloupe. Mildly doughy finish. Watery, quite warm. DCLawyer (2846) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Mom’s market in Merrifield. 300ml bottle->guinomi. Chilled. Clear, still, slightly yellowish. Mild fruit aroma. Taste has more mild fruit, rice, alcohol. Decent. First sake rating.

Bottle. Crystal clear still pour, slightly yellow color. Fruity, pear, rice water, and some alcohol. Ok, there are definitely better sakes out there. poisoneddwarf (2599) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - APR 25, 2015
From sampler tray at Ugly Fish. Clear water-like pour. Fruity aroma. Semi-dry. Not bad. Travlr (25500) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Crystal clear, almost colorless. Fruity aroma. Taste is sweet and lightly fruity, nice stuff. Jow (3980) - New York, New York, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle as I battle through sleep deprivation and watch endless hours of tv. Pours straw yellow with nose of sweet rice. Tastes of pear, raisins, rice, way sweet simple syrup, some wet wood, and heavy cream. Odd one but I’m a sucker for these small sake bottles. Cunningham (8163) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
