Is it possible to have someone in Aruba purchase and mail this beer to the states? Is this legal? How does one go about mailing beer? WE WANT OUR BALASHI! We just returned from Aruba and had a wonderful time. ABC Jeep Tour (Hugo is the guide) is the best. Highly recommended.
*****
Would love to have this imported to the U.S. We love this beer!

my husband and i just returned from our first trip to aruba. had a wonderful stay at tamarijn and enjoyed renting a jeep and doing some amazing "off-road" touring. we had a great lunch at the paddock in downtown oranjestad and were blown away at how good balashi beer tasted. it is without a doubt the best beer i've ever had. i am sad that it is unavailable here at home, but i am still going to ask if the distributer can try to get it.

I`m not a regular beer drinker but on Aruba this beer tasted like heaven. P.s. In any supermarket on Aruba you can find bottels.

Oh My God!!!! My husband and I came from Aruba a week ago ( June 27/06) and Balashi is the Best !!! better than Heineken ,Oh Yes, Love it. Where can I get this awesome beer in Orlando Florida ????? Balashi , you are the BEST !!!!!!!!!!!!!
*****
I am not a beer drinker. I do like to taste local favorites. I was so taken with Balashi that I asked my husband at lunch, "why don't we have another Balashi?" Before I knew it was made from desalinized water exclusively from their island, I said to Dave this tates so pure I wonder how they do it? I guess what I'm saying is that this beer is pretty darn good.

Returned from Aruba 20th June 06. Fell in love with the island and the people especially the staff at the Tamarijn. Loved the Balashi but figure if it's not available in the US then we're not gonna get it in the UK - people of Aruba, EXPORT YOUR BEER!!!!
*****
Balashi beer is the best!! We returned from Aruba in April of '06 and that beer was fabulous! How can we get it in the states? If anyone knows, please let me know.
****
I'm from Aruba, and personally, I don't think Balashi is THAT great. Although it has improved a lot and recently has been tasting pretty great, I've had better. I really, REALLY wish they sold Molson Kick here. We only get Balashi, Heineken, Polar and Budweiser. Not a bad selection, but there's so many others I want to try...
****
Also wanted to say, next time you're in Aruba, I urge you to buy Balashi beer at any supermarket close to the Downtown Area. It should be about 2 guilders (around a dollar) there, so you can get more for your money. Just a tip.

Just returned from Aruba on Feb 17th. Opened my one & only can of Balashi that I smuggled back to the states. It truely is a great beer, great taste. Exhausted my search to find where to purchase some. Don't understand why it's not imported like the other famous names out there.

Balashi is not exported from Aruba to the United States. Let me first tell a story: I just got back from a trip with my parents to Aruba. Beautiful island, and we all had a blast. Every night, my father and I would walk along the beach of the Tamarijn Resort and the Divi Resort, and grab a Balashi from one of the all inclusive bars. We would walk along the beach, and experience one of the most beautiful sunsets there is. Gold and pink on teal colored waters. Amazing. Now, I am not a beer professional by any means, but I do know that it was very smooth, refreshing, satisfying, and flavorful. Whether or not it is the best beer ever, regardless, it formed a great memory for me with my father. I smuggled 2 cans back into the U.S., and on Fathers Day of this year, I am going to give my father the Balashi t-shirt I got him, and suprise him with 2 cans of Balashi. Great beer, Great island! Thanks everyone.

Is there a way to order Balashi online?
*****
i love balashi.i was in aruba for t week s and its all i drank.
*****
You gotta try it!! Positively amazing beer - pours with a nice head, and has a great flavor without the heavy aftertaste. Doesn't get much better than pounding down several Balashis while floating on the water in paradise!! If anyone knows of a Balashi distributor anywhere in the US, please let me know.
*****
What a wonderful beer to complement a beautiful island! I brought some back to the states, and it tastes good outside of paradise as well. If anyone knows how to procure some stateside, please let me know!
*****
Balashi is even better then Heineken
*****
Soooo good! My husband and I just got back from Curacao, so wanted to let you know it's available there as well. Anyone know of a place to find it in the States??? Would much appreciate the info.

BALASHI is a wonderful beer! Because it's brewed with PURE (no minerals), water...it has a very unique taste. I've traveled the world, and have had all the main drops. Very few brews measure up to Balashi. Kong King Market has Balashi in the big cans, however, I found Balashi DRAFT the best (PIZZA BOB'S near The Bucuti Resort - after 9pm....just $2).
*****
YUMM! I just got back from a trip to Aruba with my roommates. Balashi was by far the best beer in Aruba. I wish I could find somewhere in Chicago to get some .... let me know if any of you know! Thanks!

Very good beer, speaks to its Dutch heritage and is perfect for a warm night in town after a long day on the water or beach
*****
3 years ago I moved from Belgium to Aruba. One of my few doubts in this big adventure was the lack of a good beer, since I'm Belgian and spoiled with so many fine Belgian beers I shivered of only being able to get Dutch or American beer. But there 's a (beer)god, Aruba's own localy brewed Balashi is a very tasty, refreshing, high quality beer. Thank you (beer)god, for giving me this excellent alternative to the dishwaters like Heineken and Bud.

Last February when I visited Aruba I enjoyed the carnival anniversary. In Limburg Holland most carnival minded area, beer is more or less a part of carnival celebrating people. I like to celebrate and especially carnival. And I enjoy drinking beer and especially in warmer region. So I did last February. The complete taste of Balashi beer was extraordinary. Very refreshing and not making me more thirsty as other beers do.

Hummmmm, Balashi... If you're in Aruba you already enjoy the finest beaches, diving and dining. Just open-up a cold Balashi and start enjoying the finest beer brewed in paradise. It's apparently brewed with Aruba's desalinized water and it tastes like many European Pilsners. Not a strong body but just what it takes to sit and relax in the sun. Usually available in miniature sized cans so you really need two to get a real one (maybe the locals know where to get a regular-sized bottle?). Amazingly available within a short distance everywhere on the beach so you don't have to sweat too much.
