70% Rice Polishing.  17% ABV.  Made with a technique called Bodaimoto which increases the acidity in the starter water.  Green/gold in color.  The nose smells like a faint scent of vomit (think of those Harry Potter Jelly Beans).  Not pleasant but not terrible.  Also a bit of banana and vanilla.  Much better on the palate with tastes of soft cheese, cream and slight melon.  Lots of complexity and is very interesting.
