BEER INFO

Airbräu
Germany | website

Style: Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Für Weißbierfreunde wird, ebenfalls ganzjährig, das Kumulus ausgeschenkt. Erfrischend, spritzig und fruchtig, mit typisch obergärigem Charakter und leicht reduziertem Kohlensäuregehalt, trink es sich fast wie von selbst. So mancher, der es schon probiert hat, fühlte sich nach dem Genuss wie auf Wolke 7 – wir verstehen das als Kompliment an den Geschmack.

Coming from a too long a stay in Paris, arriving in the Munich airpot with a beer garden right outside my hotel and terminal was too much to ask for.

For the beer:

kumulus wit beer: the overall impression is a sweet beer, more sugar than spice or citrus

Smell: light sweet hints of clove

taste: more sugar than spice or citrus

drinkability: as drinkable as water but better. Nothing exotic about this beer - it light on the palate

overall - nothing to complain about, but no surprises, very light and sweet with a hint of citrus and clove but nothing overwhelmes

Refreshing!

The Airbrau brewpubs in the Munich Airport were inaccessible to me on my connecting flight, but some of their brews are available on other bars throughout the terminal, and I got to try their Weizen.

The kumulus was fairly impressive, I must say. this is a full-bodied, strong tasting, fresh beer.

The pour looks very light in comparison to other weizens. very yellow although evidently dense and scarcely translucid, with a strong withstanding head.

The smell welcomes you with a strong clovey sensation, mixed with a bit of citrus making for quite a positive opening.

Taste-wise, it's fantastic, the banana and bubble-gum are overwhelming right away, converting it into a full event. the thick feel it has goes well along with the full flavour, and the ending is scarcely sour/bitter.

This is quite a pleasant beer to try, if ever in the airport in munich.

First bier of my latest sojourn to Germany and beyond... Encountered BierManVa at the Airbräu pub at the airport at about 830A on 23SEP; instead of heading into the city, we opted to have "breakfast" first. A 0.5l glass cost only 2.40€.

The tall Weissbier glass contained a medium/dark golden brew, with a hazy flatness present in the color. Head was healthy and light tan, lasting well with decent lacing. Aroma was of clove and bubblegum; what I was hoping for! Feel was the typical light, airiness on the tongue, with decent body.

It was lightly sweet, with a solid level of banana and a touch of bubblegum. Clove was less evident than in the nose, yet still pleasurable. A well-made Hefeweizen, to be sure, and quite cheap, too! Made for a good start to the journey! Prosit!!
