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!

Coppery golden color out of the bottle with a thin, cream colored head. Nose is sweet and metallic. I was not expecting this flavor from this beer (I think the Indian theme label lead me astray). There is a rock candy sweetness, with dark caremel and spun sugar notes. There is a green hop sense to it. Apple fruitiness with some peach and almost melon. This is an okay beer, but it seems to have a disjointed flavor profile.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Copper, with a creamy head. Nice. Aroma is minty, slighty metalic, and a bit of cold sweat. (I’m curious to know what hops are in this. Reminds me of Great Dane Publican’s Pale.) Flavor is a very nice balance of light bitterness and toasty warm malt. Not imposing, but solid. Palate is substantial, mostly dry with a bit of sweetness in the finish.

This was a Belgian Ale? huh? I thought it was just a mediocre pale ale. I dunno. This one lost me. Whatever this beer is, or claims to be, it isn’t all that great. Nice light amber color. Mild fruity nose. Citrus was most noticable. Light bodied mouthfeel. Slightly watery. Hops, citrus, light fruits, and some mild spice on the tongue. A Belgian ale? Huh? I dunno.

Amber body with a thin white head. Full body. Fruity hoppy aroma and flavor. This caught my attention.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2005
NIce hoppy aroma with some malty notes. color was fine more of a slightly dark amber. A variety of flavors on the palate leaves it a little confusing. SOme hop notes, malt flavor comes and goes. some spicy overtones ring in to the end. A decent beer but thid was in the bottle. Maybe on tap more than the aroma comes through. Karma not so good.

Sammy (10655) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2005
Nicely hopped but somewhat off funky tasting Belgian pale. There is fruitiness there. Minty toothpaste drying aftertaste, with pepper and coriander. Some yeast aroma. Orange copper colour.

alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2005
On tap at the Avery 12th anniversary party. What a pleasant surprise. Copper with a white head, this beer has a hoppy aroma - slightly grapefruity with a hint of mint. Somewhat spicy. Taste is cripsy and mellow. Not much of the hops makes it into the taste. Not that that’s a bad thing for this beer. Very dry feel, rather like champagne. Kinda of a crispy, malty champagne. I liked it.

Cobra (1100) - - AUG 7, 2005
This beer deserves a much higher rating than it currently has. 12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Still very fresh though. Poured out a hazy orangish copper color, with a thick, sticky tan colored head. Aromas are of a classic Belgian pale ale. Fruity, dense, aromatic. Mouthfeel is thick & rich. Flavors are of fruity bubblegum, slight hops bite mix well with the malts. A more than decent take on the Belgian style.

jgentgesdo (687) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Pours slightly hazy golden-red with a thin tan head that quickly diminishes with average lacing. Nose is flowery hops. The flavor starts more towards the malts, with a biscuit malt flavor. Some mild pine resin comes in later, along with a spicy almost pesto flavor. Unbalanced in that the malt and hops do not complement each other. Ends rather watery but with a reasonable aftertaste. Probably a good session beer, but I don’t like it much.

clear orange/gold/caramel color, head is beige and somewhat lasting. aroma is sour, banana with mild hints of alcohol. flavor is slight bubblegum, stale banana and spice. aroma was promising, flavor let me down.
