Sake is a Japanese alcoholic beverage made from fermented rice. Often referred to as “rice wine,” Sake is not fermented like wine but actually brewed like beer.

Interestingly, the label on a bottle of Sake will provide a rough indication of taste by identifying three flavor components of Nihonshu-do (alcohol content), San-do (acidic content) and Aminosan-do (Savoriness), however if you want more information you’ll have to go to Wikipedia.
