This slightly effervescent sake has a touch of sour taste imparted by the refreshing acidity of white koji. The amazing combination of moderate sweetness and acidity blends well with the natural flavors of the local raspberries.
Kiuchi Awashizuku Sake is infused with strained and pasteurized Connecticut Raspberries in a collaboration between Kiuchi Shuzou Ltd, Japan (the makers of Hitachino Beer) and O.E.C. Brewing, Oxford, CT.
Solidly for fans of sour beer.
