Francois Guy is light, and at 45%, is not as strong as most others. The color is very pale yellowish green.

This is not an absinthe for those who dislike anise; the aroma is the first detected upon opening the bottle and is the chief flavor present in the taste, although the wormwood shows through sufficiently well enough to keep this from being merely an anise aperitif.

As might be expected from an absinthe so simple, the flavor is not complex or challenging at all, but is entirely pleasant with a refreshing mouth feel. Soft and floral in both fragrance and taste, it lacks the astringency that many more herbal absinthes have.

Remarkably affordable - it comes in 1 liter bottles, as opposed to the more common 750ml. François Guy makes an good beginner's absinthe or an economical day-to-day absinthe.
