The colour before water is beautiful peridot with a subtle hint of blue. There's a slight haze, but it's otherwise perfect. The aroma is fruity and grassy. Strong colouring herb aroma and lots of anise. Grapey. (Just looked and discovered that it has a grape base, no surprise.)

After louche it's slightly thin, but still good. Opalescent green-yellow. Nice red and orange refraction. Now the aroma is dominated by unmistakable grape base. Powdery, good anise.

The flavour is very sweet and fruity, with a good balance of the herbs. Lots of citrus, perhaps a bit of spiciness. A bit of medicinal camphor, but well in balance.

There's a long and fruity finish. It's a bit numbing but not too bad. Fades into medicinal wormwood.

This is a very refreshing, enjoyable absinthe. The perfect thing to sip on a warm, summer afternoon.
