Hakushika Fresh and Light Namachozo Sake

While having lunch with my friend Harry at Niwana, I order and enjoy a nice little bottle sake.

I wrote: "Hakushika Namachozo. This sake is simple and doesn't burn of alcohol. Actually, it doesn't taste at all like alcohol. In particular, it roughly reminds me of unsweetened lychee juice." 1:13PM ET
