Watanabe Brewery must be the smallest one in Shizuka Prefecture tucked away from anywhere in Numazu City. I can tell you it is not easy to find their brews even near Numazu City. But I made good provision when I visited them and can appreciate them in all tranquility back home!

Watanabe Brewery/Izu no Umi Ginjo
Alcohol: 15~16%
Bottled in January 2008

Clarity: very clear

Colour: almost transparent

Body: velvety

Aroma: Fruity and sharpish: bananas, pineapple

Body: velvety

Taste: Fruity with good alcohol backup. Pineapple, vanilla, bananas. Short tail.
Alcohol impression stays strong with second sip.
Acidity revealed later with almonds, bitter chocolate and coffee beans.
Pleasant and esay to drink. Turns dry on palate.

Overall: Easy to drink sake fit for food. Does not vary much with food intake.
Fruity at first. Tends to turn dry quickly.
