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!

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 (19309) - 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.

Aroma is somewhat fruity and sweet with a nice blend of hops. Color is a copper brown and the head is average. Wonderful malt character with plenty of bread like yeast flavor and an alcohol kick that I was not expecting in a 5.2% ale. It has a near perfect amount of hops as well. Aftertaste is like citrus and bread. Slightly acidic but otherwise a wonderful ale

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Bottle: This beer is about as pure of an amber color as I’ve seen; clear, with small bubbles rising to meet the medium light beige head. The head lasts for a good while, and then completely dies to nothing as the beer warms. It has a sweet light and caramel malty scent, apple, fruit/ester yeast, and a unique hops aroma - it has the sticky, resin-like hop smell that hits just before the intense grassy bitterness....except the bitterness never hits here. Taste is pretty mild overall, with notes of apple, pear, mildly estery yeast, sweet sugar-covered bread, dough, light malt, and a hint of earthy grain. Mild-medium carbonation, light-medium bodied, it just feels watery and uninspiring in the mouth. I’d like to see the alcohol pumped up a bit, a drier, spritzier mouthfeel, and a bit higher attenuation allowed.....but who am I to judge. This would make a nice session belgian pale ale.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2005
Hazy orange appearance with a low dissapearing white head. Sweet aroma of herbs and oranges with touches of flowers. Thin herbal flavour of sweet oranges. Some orange-peels in the finish.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Copper colored body with a good sized white head. Was expecting a nice spicy belgian and ended up with a thin malty session brew. Not a lot to this one. Nice for a 100 degree day I guess.

Bottle, courtesy of jeffc666. AMber body with a small off-white head. Nose is spicy and very fruity. Some nuttiness and lighter yeast notes as well. Something is a bit off, however. Taste is lightly floral and is spicy, with dried fruits, light nuttiness, yeast and light hops notes. Body is light and mildly creamy. Finish is spicy hops, yeast , light fruit notesand mild bitterness. Not as bad as I was lead to believe.

A very nice Belgian. A lot of the sam characteristics of a saison, but just lighter. Has served well lately as a good session as I’ve been really enjoying saisons recently.
