Hesitant review...

Appearance: The color is pleasantly mapley and definitely looks like a barrel-aged spirit in color...deep and butterscotch-like. Louche: There's a lot of dimensions of color including blues,...

Finally, fennel!

Appearance: A very nice light citrine color with hints of a apple-y green when viewed in sunlight, but can appear near-peridot in certain light. Louche: Extremely thick...

Good in theory.

Appearance: It's obviously a blanche, but there's a barely noticeable yellow tint. Louche: It doesn't seem to get quite as thick as it should, and not nearly...

The Bleue Standard

Appearance: It always pains me to give full points for a blanche, but it looked as though there wasn't anything in my reservoir glass when I poured it in. ...

Unexciting

Appearance: A somewhat unappealing olive oil color, not cloudy, but also not particularly clear. Louche: Stays a green color with deep reds and oranges but it seems...

Quite pleased with this one.

Appearance: The color is a natural green, but it's rather light. Louche: This absinthe louched easily, and is perhaps a bit too thick. It maintains a nice...

My first absinthe

Appearance: The color is light. Really, really light. Clearly natural, and not cloudy, but there's a lot more that could be going on here. Louche: Develops a...

Hard to quantify...

Appearance: Very golden-butterscotch topaz. Where it's natural, it's obviously un-green by choice, to mimic vintage fuille morte qualities. Louche: Practically insta-louches. It goes from nothing to a...

A departure on traditional absinthe

Appearance: Clear, without any hue or tint. Louche: Milky and thick. Pretty plain in the color...there isn't much iridescence here. Aroma: There's a lot...

No apologies here.

Knarr thanks.

Appearance: A deep, funky green, not unlike extra virgin olive oil. It's not very attractive. Louche: Lots of oily movement while the water combines with the "absinthe"...and...

Wish there was more.

Appearance: Really pleasant. Not too dark, not too light; a lovely clear and unblemished peridot green. Louche: Builds slowly and thinly at first, but ends up...

Faux Absinthe
It kills grass too!

Appearance: It has that mid-nineties douchebag Mustang green color. Louche: None. None at all. Clearly no anise. Aroma: Smells like they extracted all the...

La Maitresse Jaune?

Rustic, but not unrefined

Appearance: Very deep color, clear and natural. Almost a topaz (but still slightly green,) understandable from the barrel aging. Louche: The louche was very thick and creamy...

Tasty and unpretentious

Appearance: A glowing orangey-red. Clearly artificial, but it's not unappealing. Louche: A peachy apricot color with deeper red reflections. Very attractive, and has just the right translucency....

Quite tasty.

Color: A light straw yellow. Louche: Starts slowly but begins to cloud nicely with some good layering. Nice and thick, with a pale butter color. ...

WORMWOOD with a capital A.A.

Color: Still and water-like, but less silvery than I've come to expect from blanches. Louche: I was worried it wouldn't louche well, but eventually it did. Very...
