Four Hot Words: Lively, Fleshy, Fruity & Balanced

The nose on this year-round unpasteurized sake is a fun collection of green apple, ricey, honeycomb, and nutty aromas. My notes read: A very cool Nama! It’s not fruity, not spastic, not jagged, rather it’s a very well-balanced and controlled unpasteurized brew that is ricey and savory and totally tasty! That made me laugh when I typed it up. Why? Because this sake is excellent and I forgot that. Clean, round and full-bodied which is soft in the mouth and has a light layer of sweetness.  This brew has good body! It is balance personified for a Nama sake. Rice freshness! Hints of green apple, yeast, toasted wheat, and steamed rice. It is also very savory! Huh? Yup, it is rich and filled with umami goodness, which makes it un-fruity! WORD: Ricey WINE: Deep Reds/Rich Whites BEER: Big Belgians FOODS: Super food friendly with salty and savory, rich, and comfort cuisines.

Prefecture: Miyagi
SMV: +2

Note: Because namas are unpasteurized, they must be kept chilled. We will only ship out these types of sake under your own risk. We highly recommend store pick-up or local delivery only which you can select when you go to checkout. All sales are final for Nama items once they leave our store.
