Fleur Bleue - Reviewed by Experts and Consumers at The Wormwood Society
From the distiller - Inspired by a 19th Century Franco-Swiss (where it was called la Bleue even if white!) recipe, this white absinthe is distilled the traditional way. Fleur Bleue combines authenticity and Quebec’s terroir by using Wormwood grown in the Eastern Townships. Made from another 12 botanicals, among them fennel and green anise, white absinthe is smoother and less bitter then the green absinthe, which makes it different from its counterpart JOUAL VERT.
Appearance - Clear, bright and inviting. No hues or sediment.
Louche - very nice louche, fully formed at 2.5:1. Hints of blue and white. Milky but not opalescent.
Aroma - sweet, minty, and alpine. Intriguing and inviting.
Flavor - very complex and enjoyable for a blanche. Hints of tart citrus balance the anise sweetness and minty wormwood.
Finish - slightly astringent, lingers pleasantly. Very easy drinker.
Overall - a great Le Bleue style, enjoyable anytime. Canada is lucky to have this one!
