COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We believe in Karma. We suspect most of you do, too. It truly is a global concept. Very simply put, "you get what you give." Inspired by this principle and the wonderful farmhouse and pale ales of Belgium, we’ve created Karma Ale, a decidedly fruity and estery ale, intricate in body and nose, all driven by a unique Belgian yeast strain. Remember, good things DO happen to good people. Here’s to being good!

b3shine (5319) - Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent pale burnt orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells of Belgian yeast and esters. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay.

NikkTwist (1583) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Hazy Burnt Siena pour with a decent showing of egg shell foam. Toasted bagels. Tangelo slices. Caramel apples. Orange vinyl. Feels juicer than expected.

Strong flavoured belgian ale. One of the best examples of fruity aroma of yeast and hops. Reccomend this one

demmbonz (515) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2014
12oz to snifter. Pours burnt yellow color with a hint of orange. Aroma of beer. Abundant carbonation that nips the tongue. Not much to say about this one. A bit bland.

Pours an amber color. Aroma is malts and hints of floral. Taste has a light caramel finish.

MartzMimic (84) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 29, 2014
Pours a reddish copper with absolutely no head. No lacing. Smells of plum and a touch of yeast. Tastes of red plum and that’s about it. Thin mouth with a bit of carbonation. This tastes like plum-flavored water. Disappointing offering from a good brewery.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - APR 29, 2014
Dark copper pour with a lasting, medium sized white head. Malty, metallic aroma. Surpising flavor, mostly dried dark fruit, plum, raisin. A little buttery on the back end. Lingering musty/yeasty aftertaste. Creamy mouthfeel.

This is one of those beers that I am surprised I have never rated. Given the opportunity I took advantage to try a run of the mill Belgian ale. If I lived around Boulder I might drink it from time to time but there are so many other better options even if you just stick to the American interpretations of the style. Even so this is a fine tailgating beer for sharing with non-craft beer enthusiasts.

Aroma / Appearance - Transparent bronze liquid bubbles around the glass with minimal head. Candy sugar, sweet yeast, and bright notes sparkle like sunshine on snow crystals.

Flavor / Palate - Candy sugar and yeast are a blast of candy canes and cotton candy in alcoholic form. Drinkable with a solid finish this does not cheat by cutting any corners. An average Avery beer shows why they have managed to stick around in a fast growing market. This is the definition of a gateway craft beer.

I’ve been expanding my horizons by trying Belgians. This one I didn’t enjoy very much. From a 12 oz bottle. Amber color. Aroma is...apple juice?? Taste is pretty bland, some spice, some fruit, quite sweet and almost no bitterness. Blah, boring, not very enjoyable.

jandd1983 (2533) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 12, 2014
It poured an amber/orange color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, apricot, honey and some wheatgrass. The taste was sweet with a hint of bitterness, dry, fruity and some mildness. Nice.
