The nose on this "first-time-in-the-store" summer seasonally released unpasteurized brew is a fun collection of honey, cashews, persimmon, apple, apricot, asparagus, and steamed rice aromas. Gokyo Brewery is hot right now! This Yamaguchi kura is making some new-world brews that are very much in the sake news. Gokyo 5 is part of this new demand for throwback style sake making resulting in new-world body and flavors. Fermented in a wood vat, this pole-rammed “Kimoto” sake is a tribute brew to slightly spritzy and lively sake that is fresh, slippery and dry. If you are looking for technique complexity in a raw sake, then behold a watery dry sake that has layers of flavors like sugar cookie, raisin, persimmon, honey nuts, sweet veggie, sunchoke, seltzer water, and minerals. Lots of acidity with a dry crisp finish, this brew drinks with lots of movement. Martini lovers take note.
