The autumn leaves on the label represent the best time to enjoy this seasonal brew. Made with 100% locally produced Sasanishiki rice, which is also used for sushi. The rice is matured through the season to develop aroma and flavor. On the nose is a subtle savory note harmonized with scents of melon and apple. The flavor is mild, but juicy with a soft texture that’ll leave you satisfied.
