Sake meets summer, in a convenient 180ml can. The color is perfectly clear, and just it is just slightly more viscous than water. Pears and rice come through on the nose. On the palate, it’s slightly sweet, offering melon and poached pear, followed by tart raspberry and hints of white pepper. Melon and pepper linger. Drink these outside, with grilled shrimp or buffalo wings. Recommended. 88 points.
