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, weve 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. Heres to being good!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass glass golden with a white head that dissipated really quick. Aroma is subtle fruit- pears faint scent of Belgium yeast. Flavor is sweet pears some bitterness definite slight funk. Reminds of a sweet/sour candy. Quite refreshing. Not overly carbonated medium body to the palate. Smooth. Trying to figure out why this brew has gotten a bad rap here in ratings. Its definitely not an imported Belgium pale but its holds it weight well. Glad I snagged the last 6 pack at my usual ale takeout store. Will definitely look forward to this brew next year.

fiercepanda (544) - Missouri, USA - SEP 12, 2014
A hazy orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is toasted grain and potato chips or french fries, kind of gross. The flavor is toasted grain, light fruit and spice. Maybe an old bottle?

Glowing orange appearance. Uneven splotches of lacing not well-retained. HUGE yeast aroma. Slight lemon zest. Maybe even a bit of pepper the more it sits. Then we get to the taste: surprisingly mellow and somewhat weak flavor. Some esters. Yeast. Bread malt. Too much carb on the palate. Not very memorable. Im criticizing a bit here; dont get me wrong, its not awful - very drinkable - but its just not that great. For Belgian Ale rooks.

Fatehunter (1205) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Pours a thin head on a clear darker straw colored body. The aroma is like cotton candy with a little fruit salad. The flavor is mild overall, a little lemon bitterness and some mild sweetness. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. A more interesting pale ale but still on the mild side overall.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear orangish color with white head. Fruity, yeasty, estery, spicy aromas. Yeasty, plum, spicy, apricot flavors. This was one of my favorite beers when I was first getting into craft beer, 8 years ago. It has been at least 4 years since I last tried. It has a stronger plum, apricot, fruity flavor than I remembered. Still enjoyable, but not as good as I remembered in 2006.

Transfer from BA review on 2-7-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance- Served a golden amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head fades rather fast leaving only a light level of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell-The aroma is heaviest of a toasted malt and caramel sweetness. Mixed with these aromas is a presence of citrus as well as some notes of an herbal nature. Taste The taste begins with a bready and toasted malt base mixed with lighter fruit flavors of citrus and light fruits like pear. The fruit fades with some caramel taking the place of the dwindling fruit flavors. As the taste advances further flavors of a spice and a lighter herbal and floral nature come to the tongue. These flavors take the taste to its end where a crisp, mainly malty, and mildly Belgian flavor are left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer was on the medium side to slightly lower side in terms of its thickness with a carbonation level that was quite average. Both were fairly nice for creating a very drinkable brew while still accommodating the malt and lighter fruit and spice flavors rather well. Overall A fairly easy drinking brew with a decent amount of flavor. It makes a rather good session, but overall is nothing too special.

keanex (1452) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Clear dark amber body with a quickly dissipating head that leaves a very thin light tan coating.
Aroma: The aroma is bold and fruity with papaya and pear initially with strawberry and banana beneath it.
Taste: The flavor matches the aroma very well, papaya up front with light strawberry through the mid. Some phenols towards the back with a dash of vanilla and banana. Very mild and enjoyable.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: This is a very nice beer, one I would like mid-afternoon as something light and slightly sweet. This is soft and enjoyable, very fruity.
