Extremely clear visibility on the pour with tangerine peel, soft herb, melon and fresh yeasty aromas. Secondary notes of banana, fennel and soft apple on the background lead the way into a complex palate of banana, cherry blossom, coconut water and soft anise flavours. Lighter to medium body due to the addition of brewers alcohol creating a light, clean “special” brew with a medium finish. This was a winner at national sake judging contest in Japan for the Honjozo category. Score: 88 (Michael Pataran, www.WineAlign.com, Jun 2012)
