Elixir effect visibility

Currently, first you make elixir, then you can hover mouse above it and you instantly see with high precision everything that it does.
Isn't that kind of stupid? Why hearthlings can't just calculate its effects before even crafting it?

Elixir effects should not be visible via dialog, the only way to know them would be to take sip of the elixir. And by sip I mean a slight taste, so you wouldn't die if the effects were extremely harmful. This would also make trading of elixirs interesting, because you would have to trust the people that you trade with, perhaps ask sip of the elixir to confirm the quality before purchasing it.

The game is getting in boring direction where you can trade with 0 risk via barterstands and visitor debuffs. Then you know what every item does without any struggle.

I wouldn't mind if the same effect visibility would be applied to food and curios as well. But I think that especially elixirs would benefit from this.
