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!

Ritzn (530) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2016
Looks like hazy apple juice. Green apples and sulfur. Taste is really sour. Even for sour apples. Didn’t really enjoy that one.

SinH4 (3194) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2016
Hazy yellow color with no head. Aroma is sulphuric, green apples, citrus. Taste is sour green apples, more sulphur, dry finish. Light-bodied, refreshing. Very slight carbonation. Different from what I had expected, it’s just not too complex and rather light. Probably not the best Äppewoi, it can’t match a good cider. Reminds me of "Sura Moscht" from my home region.

DSG (12189) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Levi’s place. Thanks Ariel. Clear golden. Aroma of ripe green apples and a bit of sulphur. Mildly tart flavor of ripe green apples with a bitterish note. Decent.

Countbeer (6222) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Cloudy yellow body with some sort of thin spiderweb lacing on top. Aroma of cellar, apples, dust, apple skin, light funk... Flavour is tart vinous apples with a light dryness. Quite simple yet also very vinous with a light bitter... Aftertaste is dry, apple skin, green apples, light meat and a light warm vinous touch. Low to no carbo, low to lightly medium bodied and a watery tart mouthfeel. Strange stuff.

Beerhunter111 (17298) - P´Castle, GERMANY - APR 17, 2015
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 (2170) - 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 (4452) - 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 (5046) - 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.
