Shichida Yamahai

$59

Yamahai is a method that allows the lactic acid to grow on its own and does not macerate the steaming rice with a stick. The result is a rich flavor profile, concentrated in umami and rice flavor. This brew is filled with umami sweetness and a hint of cedar. So good chilled but equally interesting warmed.
