Review:

Reviewed by hartsmar 6/28/2006

COLOR BEFORE WATER 10/10
Another La Bleue, crystal clear.

LOUCHE ACTION 6/10
Vrey fast and not very spectacular at all. It just louches, plain and simple.

COLOR AFTER WATER 8/10
A nice white but with a sort of transparent blueish.

AROMA 23/30
Before water it is mainly fennel, anise and wormwood. Actually a quite noticable scent of wormwood. After adding water is all blends out nicely and actually adds a sort of lemony touch. Interesting.

MOUTH-FEEL 7/10
It starts out really creamy and rich but sadly ends in a slightly irritating bite and harshness.

TASTE 15/20
Classic La Bleue, no more, no less. I was disappointed not to find the lemony touch in the taste as well. That would've lifted it a notch.

OVERALL IMPRESSION 6/10
A good La Bleue that woould be worth the buy if you'd come across it. There are better ones but it's definitely not bad.
