Looks almost like the real thing, pre and post louche. If you've had real absinthe before, then right before you take the first sip of Absente will be the last time you think it has any resemblance to actual absinthe. It tastes awful, mostly chemicals and dyes, and leaves a fake-ish anise aftertaste that just isn't pleasant.



Better than Pernod by the smallest of whiskers, though.
