- This is a genshu so be careful of the high alcohol content.
- A little light bodied for your average genshu, but still enough body and spice to keep you satisfied.
- Coming from Yamagata Prefecture, it has a lot of character. Very fun to drink.
- Yamahoushi has a full line up of sake, from Junmai and Honjozo, to Junmai Daiginjo. Under a different label, but same brewery, there is also an Umeshu (plum wine) available. Look forward to more Yamahoushi in future posts!

Yamahoushi Daiginjo Nama Genshu
This time we are going with a little bit of light and dry with a bang.
Yamahoushi / 山法師
Daiginjo Nama Genshu / 大吟醸生原酒
Alcohol: 18~19% / Polish: 50%
Brewery: Rokkasen / Yamagata Prefecture
On the nose: Very clean and fresh. Sweet, slightly fruity notes, with hints of rice and yeast.
On the Palate: Dry with a strong bite off the bat, followed by underlying sweet and fruity characters that give it a nice rounded flavor. Light to medium bodied.
