The nose on this Hyogo brew is a slick collection of Asian apple, cinnamon, Sprite™, pear, steamed rice, and minerals. Are you ready for a “performance sake”? A what? Some brewers make a sake for a specific reason other than just tasting great. In this case, it’s a sake made to drink dry, be dry, and do all the wonderful things that “super dry” sakes do! And yes, it’s an Izakaya food pairing superstar. Spritzy, lively, zesty, and very dry, this brew is laser tight and refreshingly crisp. Look for crisp apple, Asian pear, lemon water, daikon, celery, and a hint of lemon-lime flavors like a refreshing crisp Sprite™, with a very nice under foundation of umami, and a super quick mineral finish. Made with Yamadanishiki milled to 55%, this is a higher-end dry sake drinker’s dream come true. WORD: Dry WINE: Tight Reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Izakaya and pub fare, grilled, salty, savory, fried, and comfort foods.
