Tastes like summer. I agree with comments of less lemon and easy on the Chartreuse. Will try shaken with egg white next time.

I really love this herbal, floral creation, thank you! I tried it with Yellow Chartreuse before I had Benedictine, which was also great. This is on my short list of absolute favorites.

From other users

Less lemon and light on the Chartreuse. May be nice shaken with egg white (4 stars)
As per another member's suggestion, I cut back the lemon juice (All the way to 1/2oz) It made an excellent drink, but might try edging it up to 3/4 oz next time. (4 stars)
go a little light on the chartreuse and lemon (4 stars)
Herbal and slightly bitter. (5 stars)
