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!

Erasmus_ro (1484) - 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.

Pretty mild one. Slightly tart and funky. Thin body. Definitely a mass-produced one.

Marko (4068) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 1, 2012
Brought by someone to the ISHA Zagreb 2012 NDP (thanks... hm, Sophie I reckon). Was positively shocked that I got to try something new yet again on one of those, really didn’t expect something like this. Clear yellow body. Sweet-sour musty nose, quite generic. Watery, tart, dry, slightly crappy apple taste. One of the more common ones I guess, and by far the worst I’ve had from Germany... and I thought that nothing could move Blauer Bock from that distinction.

SudsMcDuff (5941) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2012
single from mixed sixer from local Kroger .. Pours a lifeless deep yellow .. light headring .. . odd dull thin mouth .. . nice dryness, low sweetness which is nice, and a touch of bone funk- which is really nice .. . overall- a nice cider but the mouth is just to thin to make it a repeat .. . . if thats a big book, he must be a fuckin giant! run!!

jfb (4081) - Freising, GERMANY - APR 3, 2012
(bottle) pours a clear pale yellow colour with no head. aroma of sweet apples and light bread dough, with a hint of lemon extract. flavour is mostly apple juice and compost, slightly tart, with a hint of earth, bread dough and solvent. light-bodied with average carbonation.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2012
Pale yellow. Very light carbonation, visually. Rather sulphury aroma is not particularly pleasant, like stinky apple juice. Dry, thin, with lots of harsh tartness and sulphur. Definitely has some characteristics of a crappy white wine, but much drier and harsher. Pretty industrial stuff right here.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle, left in the apartment by the previous tenant. Looks better in the glass than it does in the clear bottle. Terrible packaging makes it look like a soft drink. It pours flat. The aroma is dry, fairly resinous, with musty apple character hiding in the background. Smells more like a cheap white wine than a cider. It’s fairly tart, but has a mass-produced mealy Granny Smith flavor. There is no pleasant crab apple bite. The first sip makes me wince a bit, and it’s very thin. Worth what we paid.

Sour aroma with apple notes. Clear, light yellow body. Light bitter flavor. Light to mecdium palate.

Bottle. Clear pale yellow colour with virtually no head. Fruity aroma with notes of apples. Sour flavor and finish.

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2011
1L bottle from an Edeka supermarket
Light blond color, no head. It has tiny microbubbles in suspension. Aroma of plastic and hazelnuts. Dry mouthfeel, weak, with a sour flavor, like the worst of the white wines, and light hazelnuts. It has a chemical touch too, in the end. Undrinkable.
