Kizakura Perle (黄桜 ペルル)

Kizakura Perle (黄桜 ペルル) uses wine yeast, which gives it a refreshing sour taste, a gentle sweetness, and a well-balanced finish. The brewery recommends it to those trying sake for the first time. The name "Perle" derives from the French (and German) word for "pearl". Kizakura named it so for its pearl-like smooth taste. Best consumed chilled in a large wine glass.

Kizakura Shuzō is a major sake brewery in Yokoōji, Fushimi in Kyōto. It was founded in 1925 as a branch of another Fushimi brewery named Sawaya (現). It mainly manufactures sake under the "Kizakura" brand, but in recent years has also been involved in the production and sale of beer and the management of restaurants.

The company name derives from the founders' fondness for yellow cherry blossoms (a cherry tree with pale greenish-white flowers). The company's mascot is a kappa drawn by cartoonist Shimizu Kon (since 1974, after Shimizu's death, cartoonist Kojima Isao has been in charge of the design). Until 2006, the company's name was Kizakura Shuzō, the following year; it was changed to the current name without the 'Shuzo' to broaden the scope of expansion beyond sake.

The Kizakura breweries are at the Fushimi head office in Kyōto and Tamba, Hyōgo. A small brewery was attached to the directly managed restaurant opened at the Mediage in Daiba, Minato, Tōkyō, but closed along with the restaurant in September 2009. The sparkling sake produced by the Tamba Brewery with black beans won a Bronze medal at the International Beer Competition 2013.

Fruity, sour, not too sweet, with qualities reminiscent of umeshu. A little thin and more of a "cocktail sake". Perhaps suited for beginners, we found it rather disappointing.
