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!

Thanks to puzzl for sharing - clear light gold, effervescent pour - light aroma, with apple skins and light phenols - tart, dry, champaign-like flavor - not terribly complex - just light apple flavor and tingly carbonation - refreshing in a way, but mostly forgettable.

Bottle. This shit almost killed me. Not even kidding. It left a crazy dent in the ceiling. Yikes. Aroma has some oxidized apple, nice cinnamon, a little bit of alcohol. Lots of carbonation, quite fizzy, with a kind of chewy, apple skins flavor. Pretty dry. Decent enough.

Dégusté au Salon des vins et spiritueux de Montreal 08, le 28/3/08. Couleur vin blanc, peu de bulle. Arome de pomme sec, un peu sucré. Goût sec et sûrette, pas très savoureuse. L’opposé de Frima!

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.

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...

CapFlu (5111) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2005
(750ml bottle) Sampled at Vice et Versa in Montreal for $18. Pours a clear, lightly gold body with a thin white, quick dissipating head. Nose is mildly cork. Calcium, tart and fizzy. 5.5% abv. Tame - la grande tentation: very drinkable yet not of the standard of la face. MartinT and speculated that this cider was the run-off that did not make it into the Degel. Unfulfilling.
