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!

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Hazy burnt bronze pour under a thin fut firm off-white head. Malty aroma with a little pepper, toffee, and mild citrus. Flavors mirrored the aroma but in an underwhelming manner. I kept hoping for something noteworthy but it never came. Finish was mildly sweet, mildly bitter, but otherwise unremarkable. There’s really nothing wrong with this beer aside from the fact that there are so many better examples out there.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2005
Bottle @ Oliver Twist, StockholmBlonde to amber, no head. Served ice cold due to problem with fridge. Very fruity aroma when warmed up. Noticably begian in character, though a bit hoppier. Pinapple and peaches in taste. A lot of other fruits are present as well. Liquid fruit sallad with hop dressing.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Dark orange, small white head. Smell = sweet, spicy, citrusy. Tastes white pepper, bitter oranges, caramel. Quite watery and grainy, but flavorful enough to enjoy.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Pours a clear amber color, small white head. Aroma of cherries, pine needles, and bananas. Flavor is sweet, lots of citrusy hops. Kind of a blend between a hefe- and a pale ale.

sloth (2452) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Medium sized offwhite head, fair retention and a good amount of stringy, coating lace. Clear copper colored brew, lace just hanging on. Dry malty nose, lightly earthy,faint citrus. Body is light. Mild citrus flavors, lightly malty, bready notes and some oxydative notes as well. Finish is dry and quick. Not bad Karma but not good Karma either.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 Amber color with a small off white head. Aroma is Light honey and a hint of mint. Flavor starts lightly sweet and citrus fruity, some apple and pepper finishing dry with a lingering light orange rind taste. Light, watery palate.

TomDecapolis (4437) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 24, 2005
On draft at the Blue Dog. Poured a golden amber with a thin off white head. Tastes of various fruits, picked up some apricot at the end. This was served a little too cold to pick up the aroma and all the flavor. Didn’t have time to let it warm up more.

Kinz (3256) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Copper orange, decent head fades away. Aroma is vaguely fruity, with some pepper and faint spiciness. Strangely present, yet almost non-descript at the same time. Flavor has some faint cherry, a bit of orange, and a sweetness that is hard to pinpoint. I’m having a really hard time getting my taste-buds and head around this beer. Odd finish as well, as it starts off light in the mouth and finishes full on the palate. Flavors driven by yeast, resulting in a sort of strange, almost unsettling experience.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Pour is nice amber with a big than head that left a nice lacing...smell is a little funky and a little fruity...maybe grapes...taste is rather bland with just lots of malt and grass...I can see it as a session though...

omhper (19216) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2005
Bottled. Dark amber, brief head. Aroma of caramel. mango and almonds. Sweetish with clean, hard mouthfeel and somewhat thin body. Strong cardboard flavour, like in an overly aged, severely oxidized beer - then nothing. After the aroma this beer offers nothing but a downhill slope towards a metallic finish.
