It's so close!

Appearance: So close to perfect. There is the slightest, and I mean tiniest, amount of hue. The only other visible imperfections are from the glass. Water isn't this clear. ...

Not Jelly

Appearance: This carries an old “dead leaf” hue with just hints of green. The overall impression is of a dark topaz that appears heavy. It is otherwise clear and sediment...

Iron Curtain of Badine

Appearance: A heavy, dark and grassy olive-green hue colors this clear and haze free absinthe. Louche: This absinthe brings on the thickness. The clouds burst into gelatin like rolls...

Medicinal Campfire

Hallmark of the Bleue Tradition

Appearance: Clearer than water with a hint of nothingness. This is seriously clean and clear. The glass ads the only imperfection that I can see. Almost surreal to an extent....
