Location: Tried this from a number of cans in Aruba both poured into a glass and straight from the can, 9/16/14

Aroma: The aroma is light and fruity, kind of papery too, otherwise, similar to Balashi
Appearance: Pours a clear yellow color with a small, fizzy head that doesn’t leave much lace
Flavor: The taste is sweet and malty, a little fruity, with some corn and paper
Palate: The body is light, it is easy drinking, with a very thin finish
Overall Impression: It’s not a good beer, but it drinks alright in a pool or on a beach. It is definitely a different beer than Balashi, but not necessarily better or worse.

A thouroughly boring and partly undrinkable beer. Bought this along side the much supperior Balashi. Very watery and Carona-like.

Had this on Aruba. There was not much of a head and no lacing. There was a weak aroma and the taste of various grasses.

250 ml bottle purchased by durwoodx, shared by Huhzubendah. Thanks guys! Pours a clear light golden color with lasting thin head and slight sudsy lacing. Aroma is mild and sweet: corn, yeast, bread. Flavor is mild - honey, corn and light vegetal grassiness. Not terrible, looking forward to something more palatable.

Thanks to Darrell for bringing this back from Aruba for me. The beer is light golden and clear with virtually no head. Sweet corn, malt, adjuncts aroma. Sweet and cloying. Good thing it comes in a small bottle. Syrupy yet light on the palate. Artificial sweetness. A beer for the masses to be consumed at the beach. A fun tick, but that’s about it.

Very nice sweet beer which has to be drunk with a slice of citron. This will bring up the flavor perfectly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smell of straw. Pale golden colour, high white head. Aroma of straw, grain, metal, rubber. Slightly bitter. Lively carbon. Rather gross.

250mL clear bottle ubiquitous in Aruba. What the f*** is up with these ridiculous beer bottle sizes. R u serious? Clear straw pour. No head formation. Pineapple, paper, lemon nose. Taste is inoffensive, pineapple, yellow apple. Seltzer palate. Like Amstel Bright. Not much there to hate on.

weihenweizen (1879) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Refrigerated 0.22 cl clear bottle. Clear pale golden, light body, low carbonation, white head. Taste is clean light malt. Refreshing and better than most light beers in my book. Surprising not skunky.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Much better than the namesake brew. Aroma lacks more than just pale malt and citrus. Taste is refreshing, excellent for a sunny cloudless day on a pier in the Caribbean
