Bottle, 30cl. Courtesy of Cunningham. A clear, oily, flat sake. Alcoholic, cheesy nose with some rice water. Fruity. It’s warming and full bodied, slightly oily, with mature cheese, rice water, canned pears and some higher alcohols. Not very good this one. 140214

Bottle 300ml @ Cunningham
Pours almost clear as water without a head. Aroma has notes of rice, alcohol, hint of fruits and cheese. Taste is light to medium sweet with a warm finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is flat

Bottle @ hotel room. Clear pour, light legs, no head. Nose is rice, nuts, and alcohol. Moderate sweetness, some pear, and maybe some green melon. Flavor is boozy and sweet. Nuts, rice, pear, and a hint of green melon. Meh.

Crystal clear. A very perfumy nose. Very dry with a mold-like flavour to it. Not inconsiderable acidity. Very light and with obvious alcohol.

Bottle. Pours a clear very light straw yellow. Woody and sweet aromas, fruity with some sweet rice cake aromas, daifuku I think they are. Medium bodied, a little minerally and oily. Smooth and silky at first, slightly sweet. Dries out big time and ends with slow warming alcohol on the finish.

Clear liquid, very nice lacing. The aroma is reminscent of playdough with a grassy fruity undertone. The flavor has lots of pear, and spice. Grass shows as well, with hints of banana, vanilla, cedar, cheese, and a spicy finish. Very nice!

An interesting idea a unpasturized sake. Smells sweet and yeasty a lot more character than I was expecting. Flavour is sweet and fresh with notes of plum. and it hardly has any of that feet flavour i have come to expect from sake. I say Very Good!

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear, massively aromatic nose: pears, mushroom, anise, earth, brown rice, nice fruit and earth character. Delightful-tasting as well, very full-bodied and rich, a lovely sake.

Bottle… This bottle of sake completes my exploration of every style of beer, cider, mead, ice cider and sake listed on ratebeer.com… Pours as clear as water (that’s some polished-assed rice) and even after several twirls around the glass, provides little to no coating or legwork. The aroma is ultra-fruity – mostly plum and pear. Medium-bodied with a watery, slightly slick mouthfeel. The flavor is fruity, much like the nose; also, pleasantly sweet and easy drinking. The high ABV sneaks up on you rather than slapping you upside the head. Finishes easygoing and sweet with moderate dryness at the very end. Thanks to dchmela for providing me with a bottle of this elusive style of rice beer!
