Foo Fighters x Tatenokawa Hansho Ao Junmai Daiginjo "Midnight Blue"
A Junmai Daiginjo sake created to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Foo Fighters and the release of their 10th album "Medicine At Midnight". This HANSHO Blue was brewed while listening to the music of the Foo Fighters. Inspired by the pop aspects of their sound, it has a gorgeous aroma and a light sweetness. Just sweet enough to drink after a long day and let the flavours wash over and into you.
Please enjoy it to the music of the Foo Fighters!! - Tatenokawa
The nose on this sake that was inspired by the rock group the Foo Fighters is an amazing collection of apple, pear, peach, citrus, cherry, strawberry, and sugar aromas. Round, soft, and fruity this brew drinks very easy and has a nice slippery feeling. There is a little tingle and subtle zesty quality that makes for an enjoyable and clean drinking experience. Look for young pear, peach, blueberry, pineapple, strawberry, mineral, and a dark chocolate finish. As the fluid warms a few more citrus notes come forth, and this Junmai Daiginjo excels in a bigger glass. Made with a Yamagata brewing rice varietal called Dewasansan milled to 50% this juicy and light brew speaks to white wine drinkers. WORD: Fruity WINE: Soft Reds/Fruity Whites BEER: Fruity Ales FOODS: Crab, lobster, shrimp, oysters, Champagne fare. - Beau Timken
