The nose on this seasonally released unpasteurized summer brew is a slick collection of melon, cherry, grape, pear, and raisin aromas. Clean, crisp, compact, and semi-dry, this is almost prototypical “summer nama sake.” Light and bright. There are fruit tones, but the overall drinking experience is on the dry and crisp side with a mineral finish. This Kid is gentle, light, and impeccably clean, and would appeal to all of those Kid fans out there. It’s like tasting their summer season in a bottle. Look for mint, dried apple, peach, apricot, nectarine, and cherry flavors that get a little sweeter as the fluid warms in the glass. Classic poolside sake that refreshes and entices in the same chilled sip. WORD: Clean WINE: Tight Reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Tight Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, oysters, crab, shrimp, lobster, cold chicken, and summer salads.
