Akashi-Tai Tokubetsu Honjozo

The nose on this Tokubestu, which means “Special” for milling purposes usually, Honjozo consists of woody, earthy, ricey, and nutty aromas. Say hello to a crisp and flavorful brew that is gloriously is made with 100% Gohyakumangoku rice and would appeal very much to red wine drinkers who enjoy their tannins. Look for flavors including steamed rice, wheat, nuts, and savory elements that beg to be tasted at different temperatures from chilled to room to slightly warmed. Light and dry this brew drinks with more perceived body than actually what exists, which is really cool. It is clean and compact and does great in a wine glass that actually pulls out some dark chocolate tones. WORD: Clean WINE: Tannin reds/Crisp whites BEER: Earthy ales FOODS: Grilled meats, things on a stick, oily/greasy/salty fare
