The nose on this seasonally released, unpasteurized (nama), and undiluted (genshu) sake is a very interesting collection of peach, blueberry muffin, berries, fig, peach, Muscat, seaweed, and grassy aromas. Talk about sticking your face down in a freshly made vat of sake and taking a big ol' sip. This is fresh and vivid sake that is spritzy, crisp, zesty, bright, mid-bodied with a silkiness to it that is odd for such a fresh and brash brew. Made with Hitogokochi rice and two bright yeast types, look for peach, persimmon, Concord grape, nectarine compote, herbs, banana bread, strawberry, molasses, blueberry yogurt, and some lively umami flavors that drink with a little tannin-like dryness, so red wine fans take note. A vivid brew with a quick and clean snow melt finish. WORD: Refreshing WINE: Crisp Reds/Herbal Whites BEER: Herbal Pilsners FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, Chinese stir-fry, roast pork, butter sautéed mushrooms, spinach, chicken cream stew, and thick cut bacon.

The nose on this unpasteurized and undiluted (genshu) seasonally released sake is a fun collection of papaya, powdered sugar, cream, blueberry, grape, rock sugar, and mineral aromas. Yes! Fun, fresh, and flavorful this brew is smooth, light, and juicy. The fun comes in the combining of the crisp and creamy feelings with really lively flavors such as melon, apple, lychee, pineapple, pear juice, blueberry, grape, mango, and spring water. This is one of those sakes that drinks like you’re biting a snowball that is fresh and minerally. It’s rather controlled and balanced for all of the shiboritate action and those sublime flavors. Kisoji knocked this one out of the park. WORD: Balanced WINE: Fruity Reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, lobster, shrimp, oysters, cheese plates, fruit plates, and Champagne fare.
