~Scent of spicy saaz hops, some sourness and wet straw.
~Pours a very clear gold color with small diminishing white head.
~Saaz hop flavor with sour malty hay... taste much sweeter and better at the brewery.
~Light bodied, med to high carbonation, spicy bitter finish.
~Excellent Pilsner. Refreshing brew. Great for a hot day at the beach. If you can get it straight from the brewery tap. Taste much better than at a bar or resturants tap. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Bottle: Yellow, clear. More husk. Light bran, wheat with a more pleasant malty biscuity note in the nose. Still thin though. ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Can from Daniel. I forgot how he got this beer, but I would certainly drink more of it. From the can it tastes like a pale lager, smells like one, and yeah. Thats about it. Nothing really to say other than its better than budwesier, tastes like a non skunked heineken, and from a country that is not very large and assumingly does not have a ton of brewers, it isnt bad at all. I would drink this if I was there, probably better than the water 00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2009
A gift from my boss on a recent trip to Aruba. Thanks Chuck! Pours out a typical yellow color with a huge quick disappearing head. Aroma had some corn, sugar and hops to it. Taste was rather refreshing with a crisp bitter finish. Over all a nice brew. Foxbush (2009) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 28, 2009
Balashi is the beer brewed in Aruba from sea water. While on an Indiana Furniture trip to Aruba Balashi was the beer to drink. It was served everywhere you went. It was refreshing in the windy 90 degree climate. There is a slight bitterness but very smooth. This not a beer with much complexity. It a fun beer to drink while sitting on the water’s edge soaking the sun. The bottles were mostly small less than 9 oz. It went quickly.

Ok, so this is one of those beers you have to "just try" It’s from Aruba right. A golden beer flavored beverage. Great. beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2009
11 oz. can that I received as a gift from someone who just got back from a vacation in Aruba. Pours a crystal clear gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first sip and left no lace. Mild aroma of corn cereal and some grassy hops. The flavor is corn cereal up front followed by some harsh grassy hops. Thin, watery body. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Can, on tap, and in a bottle (a very tiny, little bottle... how cute!). Better double fist these. Pours golden and clear with a small white head. Any aroma you get will definitely have some corn and cereal notes. The palate is pretty simple and follows the nose. Listen, this beer isn’t trying to win anything at the GABF, but it is perfect for the scorching hot sun of Aruba. You can easily drink the little 7 oz. bottles by the dozen.

Bottle Pours out a gold toppd with a small head. Aroma of sweetness and malt. Tast was of malts and light grass. Not the grass you were thinking of (spring grass). jake65 (3626) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Bottle: Bright yellow pour with no real head. Sweet honey and malty scent. Malty taste with a small grassey feel. Not bad, not good. Thanks Jordan.
