Flavor & fragrance profile

Master brewer's comments

This year's Namazake shows number seven yeast's gentle fruit aromas very beautifully; it seems more like a ginjo-class sake in character, and is clean and fresh at the finish. This unpasteurized brew will become sweeter with time, so enjoy it as it develops over the summer.

Food pairing suggestions

Fresh salads, grilled meats, foods with Japanese spices like ginger, wasabi, and yuzu pepper.
