Meh-sinthe.

Color: A nice, grassy green, but not too green. I think it might be a little light, but it's definitely natural. Louche: The louche is a little...

Extremely surprised.

Color: I always feel a little weird about giving a 5 to a blanche, but when it was poured in my Pontarlier glass to the top of the reservoir, it...

All the nice reviews? An understatement.

Color: A really great, clear olive. Louche: Very oily and wavy when water is dripped, but I wish the louche built much slower...it's over much too fast....

Color: This is the best green I have ever seen in an absinthe. Emerald perfection, not too dark or light. This is exactly what comes to mind when I think...

A very enjoyable experience.

Color: A pale, pale forest green. Very clear. Louche: Really nice swirling oils, slowly building thicker and more opaque from the bottom of the glass. Once louched,...

Completely wonderful.

Color: Topaz, but not in a "dead" way. Clear, and without sediment. Louche: Extremely slow, but not too spectacular. Turns and attractive citrine color with amber tones....

Sugar and spice.

Color: A very nice green with a slight yellowy paleness. Louche: Wild oil storms and slow layering, turning into oranges and minty green, eventually ending in a...

Color: The color of my Blanchette came out to be perfectly clear. As clear as the glass, with the very slightest of glittering particles in it. I've been reading about...

Tasty, in a non-absinthe sort of way.

Color: Dark iced-tea color Definitely a deep green-amber hue, as compared to a gold-amber. Louche: With a slow drip, it transforms without any of the typical louche...

Good, but not unbelievable

Color: Nice, natural green with hints of gold and amber. It’s a little pale, but not at all unpleasant. Louche: Beautiful, opalescent louche, very turbulent and rolly....

An absinthe for casual occasions.

Color: As a blanche, it's hard to give too much detail about the color. It's clear and neutrally colored (no noticeable yellowness, etc.) Louche: Louches fairly quickly...

A good, solid absinthe.

Color: Very pretty and olive in the bottle with a little bit of swirling "sediment", although it's more like a teensy bit of a dark green dust. In the glass,...

"Tourment" is accurate, but Vert certainly is not.

Color: It's a lovely teal color...but not if you're claiming to be a green absinthe. Louche: It TRIES to louche. It really does. Aroma:...

Has ruined other absinthes for me.

Color: Clean and deeply colored, a fairly dark green/yellow (perhaps a bit more yellow than green.) Very nice. Louche: REALLY nice trails and swirling, having fully developed...

Wow.

Color: Very pretty. It's not too yellow or dark, but a pure, clean peridot. Louche: Turbulent and rolling. Once it's fully louched, it becomes creamy and lovely...

Certainly a personal liquor cabinet staple

Color: Deeply colored, very natural. Slightly more yellow than green, with an impressively dark tint. Louche: Louched fairly thickly with pretty gold and pale blueish tones, ending...
