This is third consecutive tasting of an Autumnal brew by Sogatsuru-Hagi no Kura Brewery in Kakegawa City. I hope Melinda will take note! LOL.

Alcohol: 15~16 degrees
Bottled in October 2008

Clarity: Very clear
Colour: Light golden tinge
Aroma: Fruity: banana, vanilla, hints of almonds

Taste: Sweetish attack. Shortish tail. Complex.
Fruity: banana, vanilla, almonds, bitter choclate.
Finish with beautiful acidity with hints of lemon.
Turns sweetish with a short tail again with food (amino acids?)

Overall: Another typical Shizuoka sake.
Great with food of any kind.
Complex sake with quickly changing character
