A delicious, ever-so-slightly sweet sake made at a brewery specializing in culturing yeast from flowers. In this case strawberry flowers are the source of the yeast, and does lend a red-fruit note to the finished product along with a lovely and delicately floral expression. Can be had either chilled or warmed, delightful.
From the mouth of the importer (Mutual Trading Co):
"The true expressions of the marigold flower are noticeable both on the palate and nose of this sake, and are amplified by the Yamahai-jikomi brewing method's signature funky style. Excellent chilled, but the personality of Omachi rice and Yamahai-jikomi really shine when served gently warmed.
