Can as Fan Schoppe from a small shop in Frankfurt. Pours light gold with a white head. Smells like yellow apple skin. Flavor is light slightly cooked apples and skin. Pretty dry.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
50cl can, desperately picked up along the DB-way through Mannheim/Ffm. as "Europacup Schoppe - Frankfurter Äpfelwein Gespritzt" @4%. Been dreading to open this given its novelty can and the fact that anything gespritzt, from Weinschorle to Radler, is a poor excuse to water down already less than stellar tastes. Pours extremely watery and beige-piss yellow. Aroma enters another register of artifical old farts (yes) and cardboard apple. Diluted apple juice with a nasty sulphuric twist, barely drinkable. "Ob Rom, Mailand oder London...ganz egal! Eintracht Frankfurt Eppelwoi fatal!"

15/04 A 0.5 l can Marko brought from Germany, thanks! It poured pale yellow body with medium sized head. Glue, peanut and burnt rubber in aroma. Again, peanut flavor. WTF? Quite sour as well, but not really apples. Medium to thin body, quite watery with sour finish that lasted for long. That ugliness can’t go away fast. I believe something went wrong in this batch, couldn’t take more than a few sips.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from Marburg I think. Maybe Frankfurt though I doubt it, 1. Liga Schoppe. Umm... ok, yellow-golden pale body, bubbly and fizzy.... Smells distinctly like peanuts, with light glue. Peanut wine basically, very water, very sourish. How? Why? I really don’t know. But it’s definitely one of the worst ciders I’ve ever tasted. And I even dig the concept, but even among the sour Hessian apple wines, this one stands as a failure. I’m desperately trying not to hate it... but... HOW DO YOU MAKE AN APPLE WINE TASTE LIKE PEANUTS?!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 L can - FBF2012 - pours clear yellow with effervescent, medium, white head, fully diminishing. Sparkly body. Sour apples on any slight nose to speak of. Tangy apple flavors, very one-note, yet pretty refreshing after a long day.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Sweet-sour apple juice aroma. Pale yellow color with mild effervescence. Sweet-tart apple cider flavor with moderate carbonation - okay but nothing special. I guess it’s pretty bad that my last rating in Germany will be a cider but I am in Frankfurt.

Can from Frankfurt Airport
The color is yellow, very pale. The aroma at first is common, a bit sourish, but with a nice hazelnut touch. The mouthfeel is very dry, acidic as well, and there is no flavor of apples. The final is industrial, and a bit plastic. Bad.

Bottled. A yellow cider with a small white head. The aroma has notes of vinegar and apples. The flavor is acidic with notes of apples, leading to a tart finish. Thanks fiulijn for sharing.
