Tangerine, and sea salt. Mineraly and smooth finish. Low acidity. 高天神 means... god of the sky far away?

Light and elegant. This is great on a warm Bay Area day. Chilled and restrained, but as it comes up in temperature shows more earth, elegance, and grain.

Very floral, honeydew melon, banana. Perceptively sweet on palate. Alcohol level once it warmed up whacked it out of balance

Precise, subtly roast grain, creamy/silky, musk melon, green stone fruit, refreshing bitterness, finishes with interesting clean (!) earthy quality.
