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!

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.

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.

12oz bottle. Aroma is sweet malt. Appearance is a clear bronze with some white head. Taste is a light Belgian flavor that finishes of malt with the yeast. Palate is that weird belgian mouth film. Overall, a decent beer. A beer you can session with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Patrickctenchi (5783) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle: Pours clear, dark amber with a solid, short, off-white head. Sweet caramel scent. Taste is malty, light caramel. Almost a peanut-brittle-esque taste in the back.... Earthy nut and faint yeast. Not bad at all.

Gription79 (2793) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Aroma has a strong diaper presence, slight caramel as it warms. A terrible example of a Belgian pale ale. Minimal hops in the flavor. Really it resembles a poorly made amber ale. Footbalmed. Double Footbalmed.

BOSSbrewer (2706) - Arkansas, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy amber. Thin head. Lots of sweetness in the aroma. Somewhat floral. Taste is sweet with some caramel. A bit too sweet though. Drinkable but not really enjoyable. Medium bodied.
