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!

Der Apfelwein hat eine klare goldene Farbe, Schaum bildet sich keine. Geruch nach fruchtig säuerlichen Äpfelen, leicht holzig. Geschmack süß fruchtig, spritzig säuerlich, reife Äpfel, sehr einfacher Apfelwein.

Atom (1675) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2015
Pint can pours a clear pale bubbly straw with no head. Aroma of sweet yet tart and dry Apple. Light Apple flavor some dry and crisp elements but also rubbery playdo flavors. Off flavors make this a no go.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
1 litre bottle thanks to Mctapps! Pours pale yellow with mild apple aroma. Taste bears light sweet apple, faint pear drops & a somewhat dry character. A bit thin but still quenchingly pleasant.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2014
0.5 l can. Golden color. Earthy tart apple aroma with hint of sulfur. Dry earthy apple flavor with some apple seed and tropical notes. Balaced acidity. Carbonation dissipates quickly, making this slightly watery. No frills cider with a cheap table wine feel to it, but there are no serious flaws.

danlo (1531) - 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 (9166) - 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 (1443) - 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.

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!
