COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weissbier fans will love Kumulus, another Airbräu beer available all year round. Refreshing, lively and fruity, with the typical feel of a top-fermented beer and slightly reduced carbonation, this is a beer that goes down easily. Some who try it tell us that Kumulus puts them on Cloud Nine. They must be paying the flavor a compliment.
12.2 °P, unfiltered.

FatPhil (9635) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2010
Draught (Munich Airport)
Cloudy orange, persistent bready head. Huge classic hefeweizen aroma - orange, a touch of butter. Carbonation pleasant, crisp palate. Retronasals wheaty and buttery in places. But it’s not an off butteriness - it’s delicious. Hops very restrained - only a hint in the finish. I’m a sucker for hefeweizens, and I liked this a lot, it was very fresh and tasty.

jfb (4089) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2009
(draught) pours a murky dark golden colour with a frothy white head. strange aroma of wheat, tropical fruits, grassy hops and a whiff of skunk. flavour is wheat, banana and some light clove, no skunk here. medium, pleasantly sweet body with smooth carbonation.

faroeviking (10288) - FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 2, 2009
Draught, München Airport T2, G, @ Kaefer Bistro. Around 17:30... but I was in the next day 00:30, Japanese time still. Good to have something else than Warsteiner Premium and saké after a 12 hour (though very pleasant) flight. Cloudy deep golden orange with a nice creamy big white head leaving a good lacing. Fruity sweet wheaty and yeasty pleasant aroma. Good filling mouthfeel. Fresh bit sweet wheaty fruity flavour with banana and a good soft bitterness. Well lasting fruity wheaty finish.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2008
Dark golden color. Fruity aroma with some banana and citrus. Very sticky mouthfeel. Tastes similar as the aroma. Banana is now more in the background noticeble and in the aftertaste. A typical Weizen but for sure above average.

DSG (6352) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 9, 2008
(7/5/08) Draught at the brewpub in Munich airport. Cloudy yellow-orange with a big white head. Wheaty fruity aroma with some bubblegum. Sweetish flavor with some wheaty fruitiness, acidic hints and light bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 15, 2008
On tap at Brewpub 500 ml
Appearance: Amber orange-copper. Hazed with large snow cap and ornate lacing. 4+.
Nose: Strong traditional weizen aroma. Slightly drier than average sample. Citric, slightly tangy with sweeter caramel like centre. Aroma similarly to Flieger got rounder and fuller as it warmed up.
Flavor/Palate : Medium bodied wheat. Slightly strange with its ash like sweetness which presented not in bad way. Fairly soft as well lighter and not as complex as some. Kumuls was good , drinkable break while waiting few hours at airport. Great for relaxing …

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 7, 2008
Dark yellow colored with hazy appearance. Medium sized white head. Banana dominates aroma with yeast. Medium bodied, crispy palate. Flavor has also strong banana, mild spices and softening yeast also here. Basic one.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2008
Much hazier than pictured. Spicerack clovey nose with pepper-sprinkled banana. Estery fruit and spice balanced with biscuit. Orange, lemon and banana squash dosed with pepper. Lingering dunked digestive. Almost zesty, orange rind-like fruit. Very nicely rounded weiss, danke.

After walking through Munich I was thirsty and didnt have time to stop at the beer gardens in the city. I saw this pub on my way to the airport and got some bratwurst and sauerkraut and one of these beers. It was absolutely delicious and perfect with a meal. Served at the perfect temperature and went down easy. Be careful though if you have a flight. The angry, bitter, middle-aged woman sitting in the aisle seat next to you might flip-out after your third trip to the bathroom. Keep it in mind.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2008
Draught, 5.4%, at the brewpub. Plasticky banana aroma, slight burnt rubber. Distinct and fat banana aroma, ending on a slightly sour bitterness.
