The nose on this seasonally released single-pasteurized sake is an elegant collection of peach, pear, cucumber, cinnamon, and banana bread aromas. The first of the Fall Draft sakes is a very frisky Hiyaoroshi brew that is lively and very bright in the glass, with a fruit-forward personality, and a tannin-like dryness that would appeal to wine drinkers. Look for peach and other stone fruit flavors with underlying elements of Asian pear, ginger, cinnamon, blueberry, and a hint of umami, on a zesty and lively flow that is brisk and refreshing. This is very bright and flavorful seasonal sake that would love your favorite fall flavors including pumpkin pie. WORD: Lively WINE: Zesty Reds/Crisp Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Grilled chicken and fish, rich sweet fare, Fall salumi and cheese plates, ponzu or vinegar dishes. (2023)


The nose on this seasonally released fall draft sake is a fascinating collection of sugar, mint, citrus, vanilla, banana bread, and nutty aromas. There aren’t a lot of Yamahai Hiyaoroshi out there so that alone makes this very fresh and fun single-pasteurized brew a good one to check out. Slightly zesty, tingly, slippery, spritzy, and velvety this brew drinks clean with a smooth relaxed brightness. Semi-sweet with lots of green apple, pear, mango, banana bread, granola, and mellow citrus flavors there is an interesting tannin-like dryness with lots of delicious acidity play. This is a refreshing fall draft sake that appeals to wine drinkers and bright autumn food pairings. WORD: Spritzy WINE: Crisp Reds/Dry Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, grilled chicken and fish, fall shellfish, vinegar based dishes.
