Color was a nice light peridot, not quite as clear as it could have been, but it looked natural.

Louche was appropriate, and detailed. Nice trails and clouds that built up from the bottom with a nice layer above.

Aroma was anise and fennel for the most part, with a mild spice.

Flavor was a balance of anise, fennel and wormwood. I found none of the "funk" a few have mentioned.

The finish was clean and crisp, lingered well. Not as 3-D as the best out there, but again, you could do a lot worse.

I was expecting this entry level absinthe to be mediocre, but it was pretty good!
In fact, I'd suggest this to someone who wanted to try absinthe to see if they like the general vibe, letting them know there are better absinthes to be had...but for the $60 kit which includes 2 glasses and a spoon, it's a good starter for someone to test the waters. I think it would lead one to purchases of higher end absinthes.
