The nose on this summer released seasonal unpasteurized brew is a gentle collection of white grape, Fuji apple, white grape, cucumber, watermelon, peach, and sweet rice aromas. What a cool bottle and label, and it drinks as cool as it looks! Light, smooth, silky, round, with a little weight to the fluid, and a “baby” shibumi, this nama feels great in the palate. With a low 13% ABV, look for a vast array of flavors like watermelon, blueberry, papaya, tangerine, mochi, sugar cane, blood orange, SweeTARTS™, and fresh pomegranate. New to the United States, this “Hisui” will soon become a fan favorite for such amazing feelings and flavors. Well done Akabu!
