Kawatsuru Oseto Tokubetsu Junmai from Kagawa Prefecture. Female Toji (head brewer) at the kura.
Crane of Paradise. 55% milling wth a blend of Oseto and Yamadanishiki rice.
Tokubetsu means “special “ in Japanese.
Dry and bold with a creamy touch. Ripe Asian pear, dried persimmon, cinnamon and a bit of nougat chocolate on the finish.
We had it with sashimi of B.C. Spot Prawns and Hokkaido scallops.
Very enjoyable and well priced at $30 CDN

爽やかな米の香り。メロンのような甘みと米の芳醇な余韻とキレを合わせ持つ。厚みも感じられ、長く置いても味わいを維持。@はせがわ酒店1,898 incl tax — 6 months ago
Woah. New go to beer alert for that crisp rice style beer I encountered backpacking all over Southeast Asia in my early 20s.
Airy, light, crisp, slight pear afternote. None of the weird malty aftertaste you sometimes get with these. Love it for classic, simple style beer to go with sushi or fried chicken. — 2 months ago
