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!

GKillian (525) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 10, 2010
Hazy medium amber color with thick foamy beige head and lots of lacing. Yeasty aroma with hints of orange; reminiscent of a Belgian White. Wheat taste is clearly evident with enough hops to balance it out nicely. Creamy mouthfeel with a tang of carbonation. Overall a very nice ale.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a nice sized creamy head. Nose is malt, yeast and a hint of spice. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is mild malt, some citrus and spice followed by a very mild hop flavor with some sweetness. A good example of the farmhouse ale type. Pairs well with french bread and cheddar cheese.

Amber brew with malt aroma with slight banana. Tastes is sweet and sorta fruitish. Pretty good brew overall but nothing I would go out of my way for.

ineedbeer (666) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 26, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Aroma is full of rich malt character and a ton of fruit esters. Light bananas, some pear, red apple and tropical fruit. Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head with amazing retention. Flavor is similar with a sweet caramel malt character and a ton of esters. Same esters as in the aroma along with some raisin. Light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall an alright beer but I feel it needs something more to balance out all the esters.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2005
UPDATED: APR 12, 2010 Nice and clear amber hue with gold highlights. Tingly, creamy mouthfeel. Yeasty and doughy; hints of lightly sweetened multi-grain crackers. Wholesome and estery, with notes of cooked plantain. Curiously salty, spicy and herbal. Mild bitterness and a pinch of alcohol. Interesting beer. I think it would pair well with Indian food.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2005
Copper colored and clear with a thin but creamy white head. Interesting aroma of spice and fruit and butterscotch. Big in body and rather sweet with flavors of bubblegum, a little banana, caramel, some tartness. A touch of bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is too obvious for such a moderate ABV. Somewhat one dimensional for the style but still well balanced and distinct. Enough going on to keep you interested.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 New beer in Town!
Pours a boldly bronzed body and an amazingly full cream colored head. The beer has a large arrangement of fruity and malty esters... A truckload of Mango… plums, apricot, peach, red apple, mandarin oranges, accompanied by some toasted honey wheat bread. There is a hint of molasses backed by an exceptionally earthy and grassy addition... lightly hoppy… very chewy and crisp in the finish… An exceptionally nice summer session seasonal… that 6er worked nicely for last nights BBQ!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2005
The immigrates from the 12-ounce brown bottle a crystal clear deep copper color with a portly semi-creamy head that is light tan in color. Nose has nice malt sweetness, fruity with hints of caramel and hay, fresh and clean, with the start slightly sweet and the grain profile pleasant, top is middling in feel. Finish is moderately carbonated and the hop delectable in their spiciness, very dry aftertaste that lingers long on the palate, a nice drinking beer and one I could enjoy often.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Clear burnt orange color with a moderate foamy, slightly rocky beige head. Toasted malt aromas along with syrupy raisin and orange. Hops are herbal and somewhat "green". Yeast profile of popular Canadian Belgian style brews. Heavy malt flavors. Smooth feel. Not a lot of depth in the flavors, but quite satisfactory overall. Some orange and biscuit flavors mid quaff. Finish is rather dry with a touch of coriander. Seems like a kicked-up amber.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Pours a light amber color with a tall head and great retention and leaves a little lacing on the glass. The aroma is sweet and has a little spicing in it. The flavor is much the same. Slightly sweet and grainy. There’s nothing too interesting here. Good brew, but nothing to write home about.
