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!

Pours a rusty amber color, off-white medium head. Light yeasty/bready/fruity malt aromas. Slightly off metallic/sour flavors (unlike other farmhouse/light Belgian ales I’ve had) as it warms but fairly refreshing. Fairly light body. Light, grainy malts and dry, earthy hops. Some characteristics reminds me all too much of a bad lager and it’s very boring, yet it’s very drinkable and refreshing, with some nice light Belgian ale notes.

blackisle (860) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle 12 fl.oz. Clear medium amber color, small frothy off-white head, recedes quickly, minor lacing; fresh fruity aroma, light sourish, berries, peach, marmalade, citrus, floral hops; taste mild light sweet and bitter; light to medium body, oily to light sticky texture, light carbonation, finish mild bittersweet, light sourish, citrus notes; overall a refreshing and mild beer, a kind of cross-over of a pale ale and a fruit beer.

Pours a clear amber color with off-white head. Slight citrus hop notes on the nose, malt, and a little yeasty bread note; follows onto the palate. Pretty solid.

loco_gallego (148) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Ambrée orangée, limpide. Peu de mousse disparaissant rapidement. Arômatique fruitée, levure belge. Type bière de garde. En bouche pareil fruitée, on ressent une certaine acidité avec l’alcool envahissant en fin de bouche, peu agréable. Carbonation moyenne. Bière déconcertante, étonnante si c’est vraiment une belgian ale.

AbouAli (102) - Genève, SWITZERLAND - OCT 11, 2014
En bouteille 33cl Apparence : petite mousse blanche qui disparait vite, couleur brun clair-orange foncé Arôme : nez type bière de garde Goût : pas intense, quelques touches de malts et c’est tout En bouche : manque de corps et sensation particulière d’avoir le malt, puis l’alcool et c’est tout Si c’est une belgian ale, alors elle est particulière. Il vaut mieux la considérer comme une bière de garde (french farmhouse)

slowrunner77 (6088) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2014
"pours slightly hazy light orange with white foamy head. smells of delicate fruits (apricit, plums) yast and a touch of hops. palate is light and refreshing, but the flavor is still substantial. slightly more yeast and fruit driven than the aroma, but still light and delicate. ever so slight hop bitterness and boquet. better than i thought it was going to be."

arnold931 (634) - Iowa, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle. Not much here. Pours clear gold rust with very little head. Not much in the nose. Some grape. Incredibly watery taste and mouthfeel. There's just not much here.

beerandbeyond (707) - ISRAEL - SEP 23, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a shaker glass. Almost clear rustic amber color with a small off white head. Fruity nose (apricot), with some floral hops, bready malt and light caramel. Sweetish malt, biscuit notes, light fruitiness, lo bitterness and faint marmalade. Light-medium body, quite balanced, easy to drink but a bit boring. OK.
