"A nose of decomposed proteins, especially white mouldy cheese. The coolness of blue-green and sudachi, and the lushness and strength of bamboo forests in early summer. The palate expresses a solid character with a deep sweet and savoury balance. Highly recommended for both during and after meals. Enjoy it cold."

"It has a pleasantly mild aroma dominated by grapefruit and pineapple, with a harmonious blend of sweet melon candy, refined sugar, watermelon vine, and radish. The taste is soft and elegant, offering a gentle acidity that complements the gentle sweetness. There is a subtle bitterness reminiscent of radish in the aftertaste. It is recommended to serve it at a temperature between 10°C and 15°C, using a larger flat cup for optimal enjoyment."
