Pale Yellow
Fruity aromas with floral and lactic undertones (reminiscent of custard and pudding) greet the senses. The entry is spicy and delicate, evolving into a fruity sweetness enveloping the palate. This sweetness is harmonized by pronounced acidity and bitterness. The finish is robust, marked by solid alcohol content. Overall, the sake is deep, rich, crisp, and earthy, with a refreshing touch from its subtle effervescence. Brilliant!
