Color - Deep olive. Maybe a tad too dark, but rich.



Louche - Some swirling action, but generally faster than I'd like. Very thick at the end though.



Aroma - Absolutely delightful, easily this absinthe's strong suit. Rich and varied, but Chartreuse and gin-like ultimately.



Flavor - Perhaps the Achilles heal of Sirene, if only slightly so. Overall good, but vegetal and not enough anise for me.



Finish - Very nice. Pleasant bitterness and herbal notes linger long after the last sip.



Overall, I like the Sirene. Not as much as some top shelf products, but enough that I'd drink it regularly alongside my other stand-by, Lucid, if it were readily available. To some, it may stray ever so slightly in the herby-grassy direction of the St. George, but restraint won the day here and the result is a product that my native Chicagoland can be proud of.
