All Product Reviews » Faux Absinthe
Upon first seeing the Reality in the glass without the addition of water, one can believe that they might be in for a nice experience. The color is an inviting deep peridot green.The addition of water brings about a very light haze. You can't even call it a louche. It's quite pitiful.
The aroma is weedy and herbal with an alcoholic bite.The flavor is the worst thing about this absinthe. Upon hitting the tongue, there isn't much flavor to be experienced, it's very light and bland. However, once it makes its way to the back of the throat, you get the unmistakable harsh bitterness and astringency of macerated A.A.
Overall, this absinthe is unacceptable. The color is there, but no louche and terrible flavor. Not worth spending money on.

Starts out promising, then falls flat
