Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours a cloudy white, kinda milky, faint white legs. Aroma of melon, coconut, perhaps faint vanilla?????? Hard to tell. Flavor is sweet, melon, I think some coconut. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body with no carbonation, kinda creamy. Overall, I didn’t think it was half bad, need more sake’s. jkwalking05 (4740) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Milky white in appearance with rice particle left after the dissapointing milky white legs disappear. Aroma s coconut milk, rice and a little alcohol. Taste is of coconut and light apricot with a big alcohol finish. ilovedarkbeer (2741) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Pours a cloudy white color with chalky creamy rice particles all over the sides. Nose is baby powder, chalk, and sweet coconut milk. Taste is dominated by coconut creme milk. Mouthfeel is chalky and kind of thick but the back end is really hot. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours milky with particles of rice left on the side of the glass. Aroma is strong of alcohol, with rice hulls and koji, coconut and banana aromas. Pretty sweet smelling. Flavor is marred by a clotted cream texture with coconut mill alcohol and buttery sweetness. No balance, alcohol is evident. mar (5417) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Pours a very creamy white color. Nose is cream and alcohol. Very much with apple and a thick creamy flavor.

Got this randomly at some tasting in some random place in CO. Crushed with Carythedude and jakebra. Cloudy, chunky pour. Nice aroma, sweet alcohol flavor that warmed all the way down. That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra and Honkeybra at random. Cloudy as hell. Pretty cool. Sweet kinda rice aroma and flavor. Alcohol warms nicely. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Pours a very cloudy, grainy off white after being mixed up. Smells of vanilla, rice, aome sweet hints, boozy. Tastes grainy and sweet and fruity with a nice vanilla bite on the finish. I’m really digging Nigori sake! Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 6, 2009
300ml bottle from BevMo! Mission Valley. Pours a faded white color with lots of little rice granules that acted as lacing. Nose is quite fruity with some peaches and apricots. Flavor is medium sweet and a bit boozy. Not quite as good as I expected, cool bottle though. porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 3, 2009
(300 ml bottle (stamped "02/08") from Belfast Co-op, served chilled and shaken) Pours milky grayish white - has the appearance of water in which you have just cleaned a paintbrush. Aroma is sweetish and milky, along with rice. Mouthfeel is lightly rough-ish and grainy, also a bit chalky. Lacing consists of a milky whitish haze along inside of glass. Flavor is fairly sweetish and milky along with fermented rice and alcohol. Bit of a chalky antacid quality that detracted. Fairly nice but I didn’t dig this as much as the nigori from Ozeki.
