Visual: Hyper-bright Lifesaver candy orange.
Nose: A lot of licorice along with a quiet orange background.
Taste: A lot of the usual anise and licorice flavoring the forefront while other bitter herbs play a supporting role. The orange flavor is more evident when louched, but is still quite subdued.
Finish: Long and bittersweet with orange peel.
Overall: Despite the odd color this is more like a typical absinthe than not. The orange lingers in the background but works quite well with the anise flavor. Again, a dry and clean finish.
