Tasted a glass at Epcot Center. Pours clear with some yellow and still. Yeasty rice, a little funky aroma. Slightly sweet, fruity, rice, some yeast in the taste. Very flavorful, not too dry and easy to drink. Very good. hopscotch (11181) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle… Clear, light yellow sake with fantastic, centipede-like legwork… nicer legs than a runway model. The aroma is funky and sweet – sweaty sock and sorghum – also boozy and hot. Full-bodied and oily. The flavor is of sweet ethanol and is a touch earthy. Sweet finish offers a little molasses and wood. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2009

Sampled at the Richmond Gathering. Clear, a touch oily. Slight floral aroma, touch of heat. Faint honey notes appear in the mouth. Oily and smooth, not bad at all. Drake (14059) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Bottle shared by maniac. Thanks! Very clear color. Aroma of rice and light, dry fruits. Taste is rice, melon and vanilla. Full bodied. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Poured a clear very pale yellow. Still. The aroma was of rice and vanilla. The flavor had a light fruit with some vanilla. Rice finish. Mild bitterness and semi-dry finish. Alcohol in the finish but mostly as warmth. heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Thanks for sharing, csbosox. The body was pale yellow with some floral sweetness. There was also very apparent alcohol and some rice. A nice perfume note runs through the whole nose. The taste had some slightly sweet notes of pear juice and rice. There was also some subtle wood and sugar hints. A decent drink. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Pours clear with a neck and still. Smells of rice, some sweet sugary hints, vanilla, touches of fruitiness. Tastes sweet with a bite at the end.
