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!

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Orange amber color with a thin and creamy eggshell white head. Thin lacing too. Nice citrus and yeast aroma. Light-bodied with a mildly bitter character. Soft spices and yeast flavoring as well. Sour fruit aftertaste at times. The finish is dry and fruity with a hint of spice. All in all a decent seasonal from Avery.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2005
very clear sharp beer. Gold orange with a bit of an off white head. Aroma is sour malt and a toasty full malt. Flavor is tart with a mild malt sweetness. Fruity esters and sour fruitness. Nothing overly complex or amazing, but a clean beer.

picked up as a bonus brew in a trade with snowtiger.the karma pours a clear amber with not much head.very little to gather in the aroma.maybe a hint of spice and malt.the flavor is a bit strange.i tasted tomato soup of all things.the only thing i can really say is "interesting"

If I get what I give, then I want my money back for this one. I paid entirely too much for a bottle of this, while it served the role of alcohol vehicle, it didnít score well in any other category for me. I donít think I will get this one again.

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2005
From a 12-oz. bottle: Interesting beer. Pours a medium amber with whitish head. Decent lacing. A standard-issue beer aroma. Taste is fairly restrained but some nice nuttiness & vanilla does show through. Somewhat sweet. Not watery, but fairly light bodied. Yes, Iíd buy it again.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2010 Golden color with a beige head. Sweet aroma of cookie dough, spices and vanila. Flavor of grainy malt and a little spice and vanila.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 3, 2005
(12oz bottle) Medium, creamy beige head atop crystal clear apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, apple, melon, hay, lemon. Taste is medium sweet, apple, melon, caramel, pepper, lemon, some cookie dough, orange. Watery light-medium body, light chalkiness, nice crispness, would work as a lawnmower beer.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Clouded golden appearance, decent head formation. Mild grainy, lightly spiced aroma, a touch of clove. Nice yeasty palate, slightly soily, fairly hoppy and citrussy. A little thin overall and a little confusing style wise (although Iíll credit that to it being the idea).

lamas (1324) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Bottle. Clear copper pour with a smallish light-tan head that leaves some webbed lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrusy, perfumed and spicy. Tastes like a mix between a saison and an IPA. Delicious. Medium to thin-bodied. Perfumed qualities along with some citrusy, bitter hoppiness and heavy spices. Lots of pepper and bitter hops in the dry finish. Another great beer from Avery. Whatís with the poor ratings? This is a great beer.
