The nose on this fan-favorite summer unpasteurized seasonally released brew has a cool collection of snow melt, cucumber, green grape, bamboo, cherry, and sweet rice aromas. A gentle summer Nama that is a little frisky, layered, juicy, slightly watery, elegant and light. Zesty and bright, with a little crispness, look for lemon-lime, crisp apple, SweeTARTS™, pineapple, vanilla, white peach, and cream pie flavors that finish with minerality and a quick finish. This popular brew drinks like it looks: cool, clean, and gentle. WORD: Gentle WINE: Soft Reds/Gentle Whites BEER: Crisp Ales FOODS: Sushi, sashimi, light summer cuisine, steamed and grilled dishes, crab, and other shellfish.

The nose on this single-pasteurized summer sake is a gentle collection of cucumber, melon rind, vanilla, cotton, tofu, and steamed rice aromas. This is a summer sake all day long. Built to be light, dry, and very gentle it’s perfect for the poolside and hot summer evening parties. Smooth, watery, silky, and low in alcohol at 14%. There is a tannin-like dryness on the very quick finish that has a peek-a-boo white peppery goodbye. Look for cucumber, iceberg lettuce, green apple, Asian pear, potato, mochi, melon, and citrus flavors that slide through the palate. A very light and enjoyable sake that is really made for summer and it drinks that way. WORD: Light WINE: Dry Reds/Gentle Whites BEER: Light Beer FOODS: Poolside fare, picnic fare, party fare, gentle flavors. (2022)
