Description: This Daiginjo has a brilliant nose filled with blueberry, strawberry, and floral elements. Welcome to one of those "this is a rice beverage?" sakes that is packed with so much fruit and fun that it takes a lot of convincing of those who do not know a lot about sake but love this brew. Yes, it has many wine-like comparisons from fat, chewy and fruity to a sweetness that gets muted by a strong acidity play. Look for blueberry, honeydew melon, and tropical fruit flavors balled up in the viscous flow that is round, soft and smooth. If you like drinking your nose this sake drinks as it smells, and for those who like Daiginjos at room temperature this brew works well.
