Glass @ Balliceaux. Had been eating spicy food. Milky with a soft yellow tinge- I found it pleasant looking. I got melon on the nose. Sweet with prominent alcohol. Mellowed as I drank it. Nice with the food. First sake in ten-ish years.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
An obviously cloudy white body with a twinge of yellow to it. A mild aroma of rice, yeast and some peach. flavor was slightly similar to aroma, there was a little more of a peach flavor and some mild cucumber to it. Alcohol was a warming sense in the finish, but otherwise well hidden. A nice full mouth feel.

Coconut and honeydew nose. Milky semen color and clarity, very unappealing. Very sweet initial flavor. Overripe lemons and plums, Finishes with oaty rice, grist, and mold.Sweeter than any sake I’ve had before, but I rather like it. The appearance is vile, however.
