Appearance: attractive yellow. No visible sediment.

Louche: Nice, light louche. Not overly thick, and not quite opalescent, but still attractive.

Aroma: oddly fruity and savory, mainly due to the saffron.

Flavor: more balanced than the aroma, but still a bit idiosyncratic. Tasty, but not quite traditional.

Finish: light anise flavors, but with a saffron punch. I can see this being a good absinthe to drink while eating. Paella, risotto, pizza, etc. I can see it being very good to cook with as well, since it isn't as sweet as a traditional brand.

Overall: Not traditional, but still tasty. An interesting twist!

Appearance: an unusual, intriguing, clean yellow.

Louche: not too thick, but lovely.

Aroma: interesting and complex but very light. Some alcohol notes, some wormwood, little anise. And saffron, as expected.

Flavor: think of a standard green absinthe, but very light. Saffron is the evident note.

Finish: pretty balanced, it does not linger long in the mouth.

Overall: It's an interesting absinthe with a unique personality, but it's very, very, very light. So light I suspect it could be a problem of the 5cl bottle. I tried it without sugar and in 1:4 dilution, while the Awen Nature website suggests 1:1 or 1:2 and sugar.
