The nose on this champion single pasteurized seasonally released fall draft brew is a wicked collection of caramel, sunflower seeds, banana bread, honey, soy sauce, mochi, and candy corn aromas. Say hello to a world class fall draft sake that drinks about as well as a slightly aged brew can drink. Round, rich, medium-bodied, slippery, smooth, and with a little bite, think robust sake that pairs well with fall flavors including that turkey dinner. Look for honey, sweet tea, crème brulée, raisin, lemon custard, sweet potato, fig jam, and burnt rice flavors that dance on an expansive and elegant body made for a wine glass. Chilled or coming into room temperature, this Hiyaoroshi is as professional as it gets. WORD: Professional WINE: Deep Reds/Complex Whites BEER: Creamy Belgians FOODS: Rich and complex fall fare with big meats, oily fish, stews, soups, chops, and the Turkey Bird.

The nose on this single pasteurized seasonally released Fall Draft sake is a fun collection of maple syrup, butter, molasses, red apple, lemon peel, and sweet tea aromas. Oh yeah! We love Kikuhime and this is the first time that they released their Hiyaoroshi in the US. And it’s awesome. Smooth, rich, round, viscous, and full-bodied, but also slippery, silky, and wet. This sake drinks you as much as you drink it. Look for cranberry, citrus, sweet tea, papaya, young melon, toasted rice, and loads of umami on a fluid that is so lush and fun. At 18% ABV, the body is lifted with activity and works at three different temperatures. It’s the most expensive Hiyaoroshi that we have ever sold, but there is a very good reason for that – it’s fantastic. WORD: Full-Bodied WINE: Deep Reds/Plump Whites BEER: Stouts FOODS: Everything!
