2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Mondiale 2009 - day 3. "Cloudy green - yes, GREEN - pour with no head. Simple, almost boring aroma of slightly green apple and sweetner. The taste freaked me out - I got virtually no apple, it tasted like a lime sports drink cooler. Thin mouthfeel, just a hint of tart acidity, but ultimately sugary and the fruit character seemed forced and artificial - not horrible, but quite a letdown from the makers of 3 of the best ice ciders I have ever tasted.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Well no surprises here, it tastes like what you would expect a champagne with apples would taste like. Dry, bubbly apple juice. Refreshing, and quite nice. I enjoyed it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A light pouring, "natural" sparkling cider. Tasted at the cidery. Flavor is unsweetened, and light of underripe apples. Palate features prickly carbonation, which slightly detracts from the flavor. Finish is crisp, slightly tart, and overall decent. My girlfriend didn’t care for this one as much as the rest of Face Cachee’s line.

Bottle shared by puzzl, who I was glad to see survived the bottle opening... his ceiling didn’t fare as well. Pale straw colour with a very effervescent carbonation. Soft minerally/dusty carbonation. Lightly chalky and a little bit tart. Quite spritzy and champagne-like. Very light apple with a very dry finish. It’s quite simple, but it’s pretty good.
