Flavor & fragrance profile

Master brewer's comments

Fruit aroma and a brilliant acidity make this new sake clean and fresh. It has a remarkably light and crisp finish for a junmai. Unpasteurized, it will grow in sweetness and depth with time.

Food pairing suggestions

Fish marinated in sake kasu or koji; foods made with cheese and other dairy products.
