The first impression of this "namazake" is a lively sweetness that develops into a refreshing acidity. Young and gorgeous, the aromas are of lilac and acacia flowers with fruity quince and green apple accents, almost reminiscent of cotton candy. It has a bracing finish that feels like a cool sea breeze on a hot summer day. This sake goes well with light dishes like clams and scallops or sashimi; but also balances well with fried chicken, and spicy foods. As with all unpasteurized sakes, serve chilled and always keep refrigerated.
