The other day once again thanks to her husband, my good friend Atsuko Kurata offered me this one cup sake from Aomori Prefecture as part of a batch of no less than 8 cups from 6 different Prefectures!
This particular sake brewed by Tamada Brewery has been made famous by its apple symbol!

Clarity: very clear
Color: faint golden hue
Aroma: dry. Greens, rice, apples

Taste: very dry attack.
Apples.
Lingers on the palate only for a short time.
Varies little with food.
The fruity side tends to become stronger after a few sips.

Overall: Interestingly enough it odes taste like apples!
Straightforward sake but still quite enjoyable.
For dry sake lovers with a little apple!)!
Pairs well with cheese!
