Fascinating beer. Annise is present but not at all overpowering. Well hopped. I enjoyed it, and i dont really care for licorice or annise. Long, very bitter finish.

Golden amber pour with medium sized head. Aroma is actually quite appealing, cinnamon, mint and caramel. Then the taste, are you kidding me!! Strong medicinal menthol bushwacked by over the top extreme bitterness, leaving my tongue raw for a couple of hours. I am a big fan of big and extreme beers but this was just nasty! Think about mixing absinthe with buckleys cough syrup and then chewing a moutful of hops, gross!

Draft sample courtesy of our server at Beer Revolution, thanks. We were happy not to have received a full pint of this. The aroma was interesting, sort of minty. The taste was so bitter it reminded me of Sink the Bismarck, in an undrinkable sort of way. Could this be why absinthe is generally served by being poured over a sugar cube? I actually haven’t had absinthe any other way, and after tasting this beer, I’m not curious enough to try.

Tap at Beer Revolution Craft Beer and Pizza Bar. Pours clear orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is woodruff/absinthe, cookie malt and minty hops. Flavor is very bitter, pithy, woodruff/absinthe with a very dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 26, 2013
On tap at Blind Tiger with Andy, Max, Nicole, Jen, and Dad. Pours a lightly Hazed gold with a thin white head. Sweet and spicy. Medium bodied, big bitterness. Weird herbal medicinal note. Long bitterness, lots of herbs and a touch of metallic tang. Lingering huge bitterness. Interesting, but glad I only got a half.

jredmond (5610) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 25, 2013
Draft at Blind Tiger with Streets and the RB gang, courtesy of Jay. Pours a deep, hazy amber body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is faint, dry spices. Mouthfeel is medium, but really strange - turns super dry and bitter with notes of mint, dry spice, absinth and a weird floralness. Very bizarre and interesting, but overall something I really can’t enjoy.

La terre promise de l’anis, impossible pour moi de prendre plus de deux gorgées, un petit accro dans leur solide lineup.

SlovakSniper (3347) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 24, 2013
Une robe dorée et voilée sur laquelle flotte un mince col de mousse. Un nez d’absinthe à la puissance 10 avec le soupir d’un miel à l’agonie. Un goût d’absinthe à la puissance 100. Un corps huileux et des bulles qui s’embourbent. Une finale piquante et abrasive. Incapable de finir mon verre. Extrêmement difficile à boire. Je dirais même plus: imbuvable.

Un verre de dégustation sur place. Bière dorée cuivrée avec mousse blanche. Cette bière est le comble de l’anis, il n’y a que ça. La bouche est astringente, sèche, anisé, anis étoilé, on a l’impression de mange une étoile d’anis. L’amertume est mauvaise. Désolé il n’y avait pas de pichet d’eau pour en faire un petit pastaga. Pas pour moi.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
On tap at brewpub. A veiled yellow orangeish ale with a resilient white head. Smell is oranges, alcohol, lime. Flavor is orange, spices, herbs, malt and yeast. Finish is extremely bitter. As in, way too herbal. WAY TOO much. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Very unbalanced beer.
