COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bulle Nº 1 is La Face Cachée’s very first sparkling cider. This bubbly and hip cider links culture and hospitality—here and now. Bulle Nº 1 releases tiny bubbles and features a subtle fresh apple bouquet and a distinctly forthright structure and mouth feel. Served young and well chilled (6°C), it is the perfect aperitif. Tease the tiny bubbles with a hint of Neige apple ice wine and transform this sparkling cider into a Bulle de Neige snowballcocktail!

( 750ml bottle ) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of band-aid, apple, and light horseblanket. Flavor of apple, earth, and light lemon zest with a champagne mouthfeel.

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.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2005
Appreciable tartness upfront is soon balanced with juicy sweetness...Carbonation is expansive of course, but not more so than any champagne, and fits the aimed mood...Simple apple flavors all around, flavorful and quaffable, but mostly very tame and not deserving of any afterthought...

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a large, and surprisingly long lasting white head over a clear golden body. Aroma of caramel, light apple pie spice, sugar and light funk. Taste is dry apple, light pie spice, fierce carbonation and some funk. Highly carbonated and medium to dry.

deyholla (7020) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Sampled from a bottle. Poured a clear yellow with a golden hue and visible carbonation but no head whatsoever. Aroma was sweet with apples and a bit of an interesting earthy note. Flavor was sweet with apples and had a similar earthy note as well as a bit of acid. A nice sparkling cider.

j12601 (6991) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head that vanishes almost immediately. Soft baked apples on the nose, dusty. Huge carbonation, a bit much, somewhat obtrusive. Dries out a touch. A bit empty, crisp apple, but not overly pronounced. Dry champagne yeast on the finish. The overcarbonation is a bit tough to deal with. Somewhat disappointing considering how amazing everything else they make is.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2006
A sparkling light yellow offering which shines by its limitations. Rather bland apple flavours are not really juicy at all while little else happen and everything settles quickly. Very short finish is dry and cleansing and we forget we ever tasted it.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2009
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.

Bottle, thanks to bu11zeye, clear transparent yellow, no foam, very lively lemon and apple flavors
