DEN Blanc NamaNA44

The nose on this very unique sake made with white koji and the typical yellow koji (mold) has an amazing nose filled with citrus, floral, green apple, grasses, and koji rice aromas. This is a very tasty new sake expression from Yoshi at Den who wanted to try brewing with a white koji like they use in shochu.  Lively, and bright you immediately taste a wonderful array of acidity and flavors that jump in the glass with an astringent kiss. Look for a kaleidoscope of flavors such as tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, green apple, grape, black berry, and umami goodness. There are tannin-like elements that appeal to wine drinkers and a sweet and tart profile that hints at a sneaky sour vein that makes this sake quite fun to consume. And talk about a food-pairing monster! Lastly, Yoshi had a special helper (me) while making the first batch of this expressive sake creation.  WORD: Citrus Basket WINE: Tannin Reds/Zesty Whites BEER: Lemon Ales FOODS: lemon, fruit salads, and lemon chicken.
