Urakasumi Hiyaoroshi Tokubetsu Junmai Namazume SE19 "Misty Bay"

Four Hot Words: Autumn, Seasonal, Rich & Chewy

The nose on this store favorite seasonally released single pasteurized (Namazume) brew that has a new label this year is a fun collection of raisin, cream, maple syrup, and steamed rice aromas. Say hello to a rich and savory Hiyaoroshi that drinks more on the full-bodied side and not so much on the fruity side. Look for creamy and smooth flavors like roasted coffee, toasted rice, burnt sugar, flan, caramel ice cream, and chicory. Smooth, rich, and layered there is a hint of chocolate that evolves as the fluid warms, which makes this one of the better warming Fall Draft brews. A great example of a savory sake that is full and rich. WORD: Rich WINE: Deep Reds/Fat Whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: Smoked fish and meats, cheese boards, international spice. (2019)


The nose on this very familiar (tenth season at True Sake) fall draft sake is a gentle collection of roasted rice, honey, butter, and graham cracker aromas. This sake was made in the winter to specifically go with autumn flavors in Japan and elsewhere around the world. Crafted to meet a “feeling” as much as a flavor this year’s Urakasumi Hiyaoroshi is round and rich with a full-bodied attitude that actually drinks lighter and brighter than one would expect. It is very smooth with some tannin-like drying qualities and layers of subtle flavors such as cinnamon toast, cocoa, and a nice coffee hint as the fluid warms in the glass. But what makes this sake special is the creaminess found within each sip. And who doesn’t like creamy and savory flavors in the fall? WORD: Creamy WINE: Pinot Noir/Plump Chards BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: Rich and flavorful autumn cuisines, soups, stews, game, and seasonal bird. (2018)
