0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
A hazy light green beer with a white head. The aroma is of menthol and camphor. The flavor is very sweet with primarily menthol.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled@The 1st Vaasa CS/ES beer session (thanks SV!). Slightly hazy pale green colour (like some of the really pale absinthes), with virtually no head. Aroma is quite much citrusfruits, mild cardboard as well as some slight herbs. Flavour is quite much the same along with some papery notes. Quite tonguetickling.

Bottled. Pale menthe green, rich , head. Strong citrusy, herbal aroma. Sweet and lemonade like, soft mouthfeel. Strange and too sweet.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Crazy green color, almost no head. Light aroma of herbs and mint. Very simple lager, low bitterness, with a touch of mint syrup. I know what is Genepi, and there isn’t any here…

Bottle 330ml (Saveur)
Looks like bright green soda pop, no head. Medicinal-herbal aroma. Light-bodied. Sweetish soda pop flavor. Medicinal aspirin notes, herbal (mint, menthol tooth paste). Quite bad radler.

Grünliches Getränk mit wenig Schaum. Geruch sehr süß, Kräuter, künstlich, so ist auch der Geschmack.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Wine Specialist. Hazy pale green color with a vigorous white head. Aroma of something spicey/mentholy. The head laces a bit. Medium bodied with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is lightly sweet herb/grass with some mild spice. It’s floral, but not the way one usually expects. Genepi: " the flavor imparted by the herbs, which include relatives of wormwood, is reminiscent of chamomile or feverfew". Way cool. Absinthe beer! Finishes lightly sweet and herby. Basically this is way out of the mainstream of beer, but it is quite drinkable on its own. It’s a hoot.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle (Switzerland) - shared by Tranquillity - thanks!
Green. Oh god. Sweet fruity lagery aroma. Fruity citrus lemonadey and cola-drink taste. Piney finish, sweet floor-cleaner pine, that is, not hops. Citrus too. A touch of mint. Too sweet and gutless, and too much like cleaner. And green for goodness sake - brought about by the additions of additives E160 and E145, or similar.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
hazy and reluctant green colour; the foam is quickly disappearing leaving just some big bubbles on the sides of the glass; aroma of mint and gentian; very sweet and lemonade-like palate; effervescent; sweetish herbal and mint aftertaste - lethal

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2008 Is that a 3-pack in the picture? Very cool. 33cL bottle from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Scary but intriguing green color reminiscent of absinthe. Is there wormwood in here? Skunky herbal aroma with an almost candy-like sweetness. Taste is grotesquely sweet with notes of grain, anise, mint and other herbs. Thick texture. Pretty atrocious. OH! After reviewing the website this contains the flower genepi! How could I have missed it! And artificial coloring. FAIL!
