Hoyo "Fair Maiden" Kura No Hana


A Junmai Daiginjo by Uchigasaki Brewing Company

Hoyo, "Fair Maiden", Kura No Hana sake served cold has a very sweet and complex floral scent. It brought to mind passion fruit and mango; however, I doubt there is any in it. Its appearance is clear as spring water.
The first sip was smooth and clean with sweet floral accents. The alcohol was present in the initial taste but did not overwhelm this delightful beverage. The after-flavor was fairly robust reminding the pallet that it is an alcoholic beverage.

Paid $28 for 500ml

Appearance: 5/6
Smell: 5/6
Taste: 5/6
Texture: 5/6
Value: 5/6
Conclusion: Nice drink to have on a spring sunset.
