COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Possmann’s flagship is the one product that has made the company the most recognized apple wine producer in Germany. The Frankfurter Apple Wine is a crisp, clear wine with the distinct harmony of a tart wine with fruit flavor of the apple. Fully fermented with 5.5% alcohol by volume, the apple wine contains no additives. It is extremely low on sugar, (recommended for diabetics), as well as very low on calories. With the natural fruit acids, the wine is very soothing and enhances digestion.

Für den Geschmack ein Segen: Sonne, Wind und Regen. Mehr braucht es nicht, damit an einem urwüchsigen hessischen Kelterobst-Baum ein echter, saftiger Landapfel heranreift. Und genau so unbehandelt wie er ist – frisch von den Feldern und Wiesen unserer Heimat – keltern wir ihn mit Meisterhand. Darum schmeckt man in unserem Frankfurter Äpfelwein auch das unverwechselbare Aroma seiner Herkunft. Kein Wunder also, dass kein anderer Äpfelwein mehr Preise gewonnen hat. Allein 36 x DLG-Gold! Qualität hat in unserer Familie Tradition – und das seit 130 Jahren!

danlo (1175) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2014
1L bottle. Clear golden yellow colour, no head - just a thin white rim that quickly disappears, and aroma of sourish apple. Taste is tart apple, abit watery and quite dry with some tannin. Light bodied, low carbonation, clean dry finish. OK, refreshing.

pivnizub (8888) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Bouteille: Clear, pale golden with a greenish sheen, no head as usual, sour apples and sulphur in the nose; dry - but not bone dry - sourish flavour, light bodied; lingering sourish-sulphury finish with a slightly balancing touch of fruity sweetness. Very simple Ebbelwoi, but not too bad…

Sehr schwefelig, auch nach Kanalisation. Sehr sauer. Und trocken. Schade, nicht wirklich mein Geschmack.

ruigo (1125) - PORTUGAL - NOV 18, 2013
Tasted a 33cl bottle in Ebbelwoi Expres in Frankfurt. Taste like some kind of medicine mixed with tart apples and sugar. Nothing special.

sloshgator (429) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Possmann Frankfurter Äpfelwein has the quality of a cheap convenience store wine. Slight apple aroma is its only redeeming value. Appearance is a light amber color with no carbonation. Taste has a harsh acidic quality with a faint apple notes. The palate is a strong sour with an aftertaste that won’t go away. Frankfurter Äpfelwein is just not worth the effort it took to open the bottle. I couldn’t even drink a whole glass!

zacgillbanks (2302) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A pale yellow-golden drink that tastes rather like a Belgian Geuze. It has strong apple and tart fruity flavours, citrus and sour fruit with slight sugary apple on the finish.

McTapps (4143) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 Big, big bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Light golden-yellow in colour with no real head and medium body. Nose of crisp apples. Taste is exactly like the self-brewed "Most" (Swabian cider) of my dad, so it tastes very dry and sour of sour apples, apple seeds and also some light cherry stone hints. Very refreshing and delicious.

MichaelAwesome (4142) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2013 Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in clear yellow with no head. Aroma and nose are quite sour apples with a but of nuts. Taste is deep with a nice sourness in front and an undesribeable deepness in the background. This is what I call a nice surprise. Very special but I loved it.

jaghana (3971) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle 1L, a clear pale yellow cider without head and carbonation. Nose is acid like and with a dusty and burnt perfume. There is almost no aroma, just a vague over ripped apple note with a dry white wine body, very poor.

Erasmus_ro (1376) - Alabama, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Pours yellow with a small, large-bubbled head. Aroma is dry, sour apple. Taste is much of the same, lightly acidic. Dry and harsh.
