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!

AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2011
This brew poured up a clear, dark copper colored body with a creamy off-white colored head with good retention and amazing lazing. Aromas of peppery spices, dark fruits (plums, raisins), and bread dough. Flavors of caramel, toasted malts, and a light hint of citrusy hops. Medium-bodied with a crisp, refreshing finish with a nice caramel flavor lingering about.

Great easy drinking beer, particularly for the summer. Nice full body and lots of sweet flavor sort of like a cider. I doubt I would drink this year round, but its perfect on a hot day. My girlfriend loves this beer as well, probably because its so fruity.

Cybercat (3218) - Georgia, USA - MAR 31, 2007
On tap, this comes out a lovely honey-golden color with a nice head. Aroma has fruity hints. Excellent flavor provides undertones of fruitiness, and is hoppy but not bitter though it has a bit of a nip. This ale is very smooth and a pleasure to drink.

garrison (757) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2006
From a 12 ounce bottle purchased at "Keller’s IGA" - smelled like fermenting gim-shi, tastes wonderful (but not a lot of deepth). A damn good beer.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Copper color, small head and medium flow of bubbles. Honey infuzed aroma mixed with cherry, ending in a bready wheat. Medium mouthfeel leaning towards the heavy side for this style but definitely refreshing. A buttery flavor that favors the lightly toasted malt. Just enought hops to balance. A satisfying change from the world of overly bitters and watery pales.

Great tasting beer. Does not remind me of a Belgian. Reminds me of an APA. It is a good idea to drink this beer. It is satisfying.

coldmeat23 (232) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Nice clear golden brown color. Two finger off-white head that leaves some nice lacing. Spicy citrus notes are all but overpowered by bubblegum scents. A tiny bit of malt pokes through. A small bit of spice notes right up front give way to the bubblegum/citrus flavor combo and are then followed by a light hoppy bite at the end. Nice and creamy with a great carbonation level. Could be a good session beer. I would have a problem with the hoppy bite it has, but could probably get around it, as it is minimal.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - 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.

Buddahchild (28) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Truly good beer for good people. Amber with a light head. Sweet bread and caramel on the nose. Medium bodied candied malt flavor with caramel and lightly hopped for balance. I love this with a three cheese tomato pizza.
