The absinthe is bottled in clear glass and is a vibrant green colour - which is a bit odd since I would expect it to go dead leaf pretty quickly store like this. The producer claims it is all natural though and I have no reason to doubt that. The wormwood presence here is very strong and if you like that sort of bite - then this absinthe definitely delivers. I wonder whether some of this may come from the coloring process though... in order to achieve such a green as is present. Overall, this is a slightly unbalanced absinthe that I would say might be "overrefined"... if that is a thing. I believe it to be more suitable for cocktails - though it is quite tasty as a traditional drip as well. While I am tending to point out the idiosyncrasies in this review- it is by no means a bad absinthe. Just a bit on the odd side.
