About the only thing that is different is the color... other than that, pretty much identical... yup.

You might wanna have the ol' taster there checked... If anything, the Francois Guy is a little reminiscent of Wolvie's Verte. I'm sitting here with a glass of Guy and a glass of Segarra in front of me, and I can definitely tell the difference through color, smell, louche, and taste.

Nope, they're pretty much the same, end of story...

François Guy and Segarra are very different. I really can't stand Segarra, while François Guy is my favorite of the commercial brands.

F. Guy: very pale yellow, almost clear. lovely smell, mild flavor, well balanced taste.

Segarra: caramelly color and taste. strong taste and smell of something I find unpleasant (I assume from the brandy barrel).

The only similarity would be that they are both made with green anis, not badiane. (this is a good thing)

The similarities are too close for comfort if you ask me... a little collusion there maybe? I've drunk plenty of Segarra, too much perhaps and when I popped the cork on ole Frank, that's the first thing that came to mind. I tried to play it off as an abberation, a trick of the nose and years of abuse but after slurping on about three or four Frank Guys, I was still struck by the likeness... The only time I can say the Frank Guy veered from the base flavor of the Segarra is when I drank it neat, warm and smooth on the palate. This is of course my opinion but like I said, I've drunk an inordinate amount of Segarra and I'm still trying to find any significant disparities between the two, tastewise that is...

There are some slight similarities, but Francois Guy and Segarra do not taste the same. I've drunk plenty of both, and I can tell the difference just from the scent, much less the taste. The Segarra, while still a tasty beverage, is much less complex than the Guy.

Hey Brett, be a guinea-pig and take Pikkle's advise - I'm curious to know if F.Guy and Segerra really do taste the same. Hell, get some Kubler too... and make me a sandwich!

Don't forget to post your review.

Get the Segarra from SC and the Frank Guy from Markus, stand them side by side (ignore the color) and you'll not be able to tell the difference... this works out well for me since I quite enjoy Segarra though neither is no where close to some of the le bleue I've enjoyed... take it all for what it is... or something... once you've had either one of these, you'll laugh at yourself for drinking Mari Mayans and N.S... I did... I still am... I can't stop laughing... oh god!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm running low on both my Mari Mayans and my N.S. 70. While I'm quite certain I'll get a bottle of something from SC, I was thinking about something from Markus, but what? I'm curios to try the Kubler, Pernod 68, Francois Guy and Oxygénée but which seems to be the most popular? (So far, from what I've read most people prefer the Kubler or the Francois Guy).

The buyers guide make them all seem so appealing.
