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!

Slightly hazy orange pour with a decent sized white head, average retention, not much lacing. Aroma is yeasty fruity esters and spice, barnyard funk. Flavor is a little on the bland side, unfortunately. Starts off with the carbonation and peach/apricot sweetness which leads to a mildly tangy finish. Smooth medium-light body with moderate carbonation and no alcohol warmth. A good session beer but mediocre overall.

Pours a dark gold. Aroma of citrus fruits and medium hoppiness. Maybe some distant caramel malts. Head disappeared like a thief. Tastes of citrus fruits and some hop tangyness. It’s better than say Shock Top, but I could still picture some asshole behind a bar sticking an orange wedge on my glass if I ordered this. The closest thing from Belgium this has anything in common with is a Wit.

Clear golden pour without much head. Very nice tropical fruit and spice aromas but it falls short on the palate: bland and thin with only a hint of the belgian yeast. Finishes crisp and dry. It’d be very quaffable, but it wasn’t what I was looking for.

xxx not a bad beer. I wanted to like it a lot because the name/bottle was really cool, but it did disappoint somewhat although still dewfinitely drinkable.

12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy orange/amber with a billowy white head. Aroma is sweet and spicy, with strong notes of hops, honey, and spices. Taste is light and creamy, with only the slightest sweet hoppy flavor to speak of -- perhaps a twinge of malt or grain. The most inoffensively neutral beer I’ve ever had.

Pretty disappointing for a Belgian. Aroma is kinda pungent, palate is pretty watery. It does have a bit of a wheaty taste that gives it at least some value. I don’t suppose I’ll be trying it again anytime soon though.

bottled, nice medium amber pour with large light tan head, very faint aroma of malt with a light sweet fruit note, tastes crisp malt with light hops noted, no real fruit coming through, very light and nice residual sweetness, satisfying ale

pours a hazy darkish amber with an off-white head. aroma is spiced honey, citrusy hops, pine and a little zing. taste is spiced with yeasty notes & malt. i agree with some of the previous reviews; the taste is where this one falls flat. the aroma is enticing, but then the taste is just to simple and mellow. mid-full bodied with a foamy, prickly mouthfeel. light bitter finish. really not the best i’ve had from avery, but would probably fit nicely into a session.

Sample tasting at a local beertasting event. Served in a champagne flute glass. Light amber, copper color. Thin to medium head, with just a few bubbles rising from the bottom. Sweet malty aroma, with some fruitiness. Nice mellow earthy caramel taste. A little hop bitterness, but not citrusy. Light to medium bodied, refreshing on the palate. I could drink a few of these easily. Very smooth -- nice beer to have on a hot summer day.
