The color is an aqua unlike anything found in nature. It looks like Ty-D-Bol.

The louche is almost non-existent. I worked very hard to coax even a faint louche out between 2 and 3 to one.

The aroma is dominated by mint and a sharp herbal scent like summer savory. A citrus note increases the overall sharpness.

At the start here is some sweetness from anise, but a ver strong minty/sage taste overwhelms everything immediatley therafter. Following that is a strongly herbal flavor (sage? summer savory?, thyme?) which really seems out of synch with the rest. A little bit of wormwood creeps through at the end.

The finish is a bit of mint, mothballs, and a lingering bitterness. Ultimately, this is an unbalanced, fragmented and unpleasant drink. Sugar actually makes it worse, as it makes the sage flavor and bitterness linger.

This is one that I really did not like at all. However, the bottle is really great. Buy it for the bottle. Put something else in it.
