The ’Pommeau’ is a mix between apple moût and Calvados.
E.Dupont POME 1998 is a very special blend of E. Dupont’s unfermented apple juice and his one year old Calvados . This blend was filled into 5 year old empty calvados casks in 1998 the tannins of which were still at work. It has been aging in these wooden barrels ever since. As the name "Pommeau" is legally reserved for such blends not exceeding 30 months of aging in those wooden casks the term "POME" was created to celebrate this very special 10 year old blend of apple juice and calvados.

what a wild beer. this is a barrel aged cider but it tastes nothing like a cider. kind of like a brandy with some apple flavors. kind of port like, almost a sweet wine/ smells like apples. you would never know it is 17%. aged 10 years makes this rerally smooth
