Sakemoto Premium Junmai Sake
This bottled Sake from a bottle shop was served at a cold temperature and poured a head of no head finely sized clear colored bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a uncarbonated body transparent clear colored body with no lacing. The weak aroma was nail polish and dry. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild vinous aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of polished rice and alcohol. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Moonstone Asian Pear Sake
Bottle - Tons of pear notes with some peel. Clear. Pear notes but the sake does pull through in the background and comes through. This is good for the style as the pear dominated but doesn’t obliterate the taste of sake.

Moonstone Asian Pear Sake
300ml bottle, pours a pale colour. Very sweet synthetic pear nose. Flavour similar, but fairly hot. New to sake, but this should barely count. Alcopop.

Moonstone Asian Pear Sake
Tasting at Matt’s; 12% ABV
Very pale color, almost water. Aroma of pear and green walnut, rather artificial. Soft mouthfeel, rather sweet for a Sake, the pear comes through in a very artificial way, it highlights the alcohol notes; some candied fruit, green nuts, too much glue in the end.
Weird.

Moonstone Asian Pear Sake
300mL bottle, pours a clear blonde. Aroma brings out notes of pears, white vinegar, and light boozy rice. Flavour brings out notes of glue, lots of phenols and artificial pears. Phenolic, fruity finish. Not terrible, but really cheap tasting and lacking any depth.

Moonstone Asian Pear Sake
Very pale. Maybe a touch of green, but other than that, clear. The pear is artificial, candyish, just not good. The base sake is bland, and god help me the fruit character is trash.

(Bouteille provenant du Whole Foods Laguna Niguel): Un liquide crémeux et boueux à mi-chemin entre parfumé et tropical. Un complément parfait pour du puissant Jitlada. Ni trop chaud, ni trop sec avec un excellent rapport qualité/prix.

Momokawa Organic Nigori Sake
$8.99 Bottle at Market Street Wine Shop uptown. Pours thick and completely cloudy. Light yellowish tinge to it. Pretty sure this didn’t come from a horse breeding facility, but it looks like it might have. Aroma of white rice, glue, fruit, coconut. Taste is smooth coconut and rice, light glue notes. Not my favorite nigori, but ok.

Moonstone Plum Sake
Bottle at a local sushi place. Probably a bad choice to pair with the sushi, but live and learn. Poured an almost entirely clear color with a very light hue of pink to it. Aroma is light sweet plum notes, a touch of pitted cherries. Flavor is a touch medicinal - it reminds me a bit too much of the flavoring put in cough medicine, drinkable though.

Momokawa Pearl Junmai Nigori Genshu Sake
Bottle. So, once again I will say up front that I am no sake connoisseur, but I’ll give it a go. Turbid, colloidal white with medium viscosity. Aroma is sweet, both fruity and...something else, grainy?... with boozy undertones. Wow, very dense creamy mouthfeel. Quite starchy, with apple fruit undertones and a very boozy finish. I’m not sure where this stands in the Nigori spectrum, but there was enough here to be interesting.

Fudo Myoo Nigori Saké
Bottle picked up on a whim at Whole Foods for $7. 04/20/2015. Pours cloudy white, like skim milk. Aroma is banana, subtle canned pineapple, touch of vanilla with creamy rice milk. Taste is creamy banana and sweet coconut, light yogurt with warming finish. Light medium body. A little rough and muted, but not bad for something at this price and easily available.

Momokawa Pearl Junmai Nigori Genshu Sake
Milky coconut milk type appearance. Coconut milk type aroma too incidentally, sweet. Thick creamy mouthfeel. 18% alcohol shows down the throat but doesn’t detract, not much on the tongue. Flavor is sweet and creamy, some fruitiness, then all suddenly interrupted by alcohol. I enjoyed the ’substance’ this sake had.

Super floral-y, tastes like the smell of a fresh bouquet, aftertaste a little perfume-y. Definitely plum taste, more in the beginning. I think it’s sweet, refreshing, and tasty.

I don’t really know how to judge sake as I’m not a big sake drinker on the norm. This was nice clean and clear. Hints of melon and fruit with some rice.

Moonstone Asian Pear Sake
I’ve had this bottle of sake for quite some years now. I’d pretty much forgotten about it, but saw it tonight and thought what the heck. I don’t recall where I got this bottle, but I don’t think it was from when I toured the sake company in 2011. The sake pours to a chardonnay wine colored body with long lasting legs. The aroma is mostly floral rice and Jasmin. The flavor is floral rice with very subtle fruity pear and melon. Palate isn’t lingering or overbearingly sweet.

The wife picked up a bottle of this. Pours a clear almost water like clearness with some yellow. A big melon paper nose that I get in Sake. The flavor is dry, more melons, big dusty rice, funky way overripe fruit. Hmm. Very intense. Interesting.

Pour from bottle at Yama. Pour is milky white with no head and good legs. Savory, bitter, green apples, banana, and caramel in the aroma. Taste is sweet caramel corn, rich bitter, green apples, pears, and tangy with a him of alcohol on the backend. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Not bad.
