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!

Oakes (12639) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2007
Clear, dark golden with a decent head. Aroma of caramel malts, undefined spiciness and anise...they aiming for Kwak? Sweet, somewhat uneventful palate with a little spiciness in the finish. Never was into the whole "Belgian pale" thing.

Bottled
Hazy nut brown color, decent creamy "yellow" head. Malty, barley and weak hops in the nose. Medium-bodied, a bit sweet malty, pale ale-type even more than Belgium. A shade of sugar in the finish.

bu11zeye (11955) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2005

argo0 (11556) - 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.

bhensonb (11139) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Has the yeast, spice and sweetness of a light Belgian aroma. Singel. Something of a stone fruit undercurrent. Poured clear amber with a humongous frothy white head that laced. A bit thin bodied. Floral hop. Fruity spice. Not as sugary as the dubbels or tripels. Not as alcoholic either. The finish is relatively dry, and it seems to leave hop bitter all over the mouth. Really good approach.

jcwattsrugger (11086) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2009
12oz bottle-pours a big light tan head and amber color. Aroma is light malt-toffee, eathy. Taste is light malt-foffee, 2nd earthy/fruit hops, some yeast (but don’t get Belgian).

brokensail (11008) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 16, 2012
The pour is amber in color with a thin off-white head. Spices are the first thing I notice on the aroma. Coriander, clove, and nutmeg are there. A bit of apple and pear, but sort of watery. Some sweet malt and sugar in the background. Mostly spices on the palate, but noticeably watery. A little bit of malt sweetness, some hints of citrus peel, and that’s about it. What’s there is enjoyable, but it’s too watered down.

hazy amber, whispy beige head, touch of lace, sweet spicy aroma with a touch of carmel and a hint of fusel alcohols and just a touch of farmhouse funk, mild bitter spiced flavor on a nice dry malt base, not a whole lot of complexity but a really nice drinking beer
