The color was like a mid 70's furniture greenish gold. Totally natural in my opinion but not as green as I'd expect of a new release. I really did like it though.

The louche was slower to start than I was looking for but came on smooth and thick.

Ahh, the aroma. My first impression of this was very pleasant almost floral.

At about 3:1 I found it sweet on the tip of my tongue and working towards a neat bitter as it sat there. Quite tasty with no "off" flavors. Balanced nicely.

The finish lingered a spell and was pretty satisfying.

Overall, I found this to be a very nice drink. I would certainly buy more and I wish I had. Quite comfortable without being brash. I was in the mood for something to curl up by the fireplace and sip. This works well for that. I had read the discussions regarding it's comparison to pre-ban absinthe and I don't think it's an unreasonable comparison and that in itself is a compliment.
