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, weíve 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. Hereís to being good!

desurfer (1224) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Light amber body, thick, chunky beige head. Aroma is rich in maltiness almost with an English ESB character. Flavor is nice but on the light side. Decent hoppiness, but itís very grassy with a bit of lemon sourness. Sorta bland.

Orangish, small white head, grass aroma, saison like flavors, with grass. Grass in the finish. Grass everywhere. Did i say this tastes like grass?

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Very dark gold in color, almost orange with a thin, white head. Aroma is wheat-like, very fruity, and dry. Flavor is very fruity, winey/dry, bready, nutty, sweet with almost no hop and a rather full body. A mildly proteinaceous/husky malt distracts from it being really good. A unique beer but not for me. Reminds me quite a bit of their Calypso Wheat but with a different yeast.

This beer has a really nice color. At first is has some bitterness to it. But it finishes very well i always tell people to try tthis one.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 14, 2005
Pours with a golden-amber body topped by a medium thick to thick head with some lacing. Itís slightly sour with a bitter accent and a slight sweetness underneath. Nothing to write home about. Medium bodied, slightly tingly yet smooth.

zug4abby (287) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 13, 2005
pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small head and good amount of lacing. fairly mild aroma with mild grass undertones. the flavor wasnít anything to write home about. a litlte to malty & grassy for my liking. there just isnít a whole lot to this beer that really gets my going, but itís not bad!

guzzler67 (1529) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Hazy amber appearance with an average size, off white head that faded rather quickly. Muted aroma, somewhat spicy, with overtones of soft fruit. Well carbonated, light-to-medium bodied mouthfeel. Taste was fruity, herbal and modestly hopped. Style seemed more in line with a saison.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Clear, golden hued, vastly effervescent, ample dollup of rocky white froth atop. Mild aroma, lightly hoppy, faint fruit, ...acceptable. Taste: Clean, and easy on the palate. Malt is here in good amount, and met by hops in good agreement, a happy pair. Juicy and grainy in equal amounts, lightish body, soft finish. Not a big beer by any means, a gentle quaffer, an genial session ale, minimal attack from the various parts, meant merely to charm one with itís let-the-good-times-roll nature and pass the time easily, crossing boundaries of taste and tolerance. Not bad, not bad...

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Sweet ginger smell with some kind of gamy meat smell. Smells kinda like a beef burp to be honest. Tea colored with a small head. Has a sweet belgian yeast flavor, but feels more like an ESB or Bitter. Taste some ginger again, but overall this is mild as the ginger is subdued and not sharp like it might be if it had actual ginger in it. Still I rather enjoy it as far as drinking goes.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Fat, soda pop bubbles encircle a creamy, foamy head. Meaty aroma that is also cherry, apple and strawberry. Lively mouthfeel with more sweet fruit in the body. Less like a Belgian and more like a fruity session brew. Although it strays pretty far from the style, I could see myself drinking a few of these of a hot summer night. A thirst quenching Belgian if you will.
