Elegant hammered-glass look clear bottle may hard to find out. The aroma and the taste may be about balance. A strain especially developed for sake. This sake fermented in extended period at a low temperature. You may taste heavy character of a Junmai. Worth to try. Bad that there is no any information you find on the label.
Fresh and light note banana aroma. Fruity note. Elegant aroma with very light palate when you drink it. Extremely light, so it is very easy to drink. Just a little dry hint, no discernable flavor. Medium body and good smoothness. Short finish.

Something really light: edamame, salad with light dressing. Avoid fried food and heavy food. Steamed shumai. Light bread with butter or virgin olive oil.
