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, weve 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. Heres to being good!

Bottle. Clear orange body with light white head and lace. Mild fruity aroma, maybe apricot or lemon, wheat, yeast, touch of pepper. Im not sure what kind of Belgian style this is going for, but it tastes to me like a wheat/saison hybrid, leaning heavily towards the wheat side. Watery body giving way to a lingering lemon and wheat finish. Lively carbonation. It might be cool if they renamed this karma chameleon ale and put Boy George on the bottle. Maybe not.

Deep orange-amber color, soapy white head. Fruity strawberry aroma with some chardonnay-like hops. Grainy finish.

Color is nice cooper, small head. What is this beer? I dont get it. Not hoppy enough for a pale ale, not spicy or fruity enough for belgum, not malty enough for a traditional ale....Seems like its trying to be everything for everyone but its not for me.....my first avery brew and Im disapointed....

Tap @ 16th Colorado Brewfest. Pours copper with a tall foamy tan head. Fruity esters with caramel malt aromas. Berry and fruity malt and yeast flavor. Light bodied and creamy palate.

Poured dark amber with a big creamy white head which lasted quite well leaving lots of lace and foam on the sides of the glass. Aroma included notes of bread, cardboard,earth, malt and yeast. Taste was surprising. Very earthy and malty, well balanced by some big herbal hoppiness and a bit of vanilla. Some complex dark fruit and citrus, perhaps. Well balanced describes Karma, that includes malt to hops, sour to sweet, carbonation, ABV, complexity, everything. It was hard to pull too much out because its so balanced. Mouth was a tad thin. Finished with a lingering fresh fruit -- peaches and apples -- impression. I would rate it as a good "wont let you down" brew, not a great one. Maybe too much karma.

Karma police, Ive given all I can, its not enough. Clear amber. Almost no head. He buzzes like a fridge, hes like a detuned radio. The aroma is sweet and bready. Not very yeasty. This is what you get, when you mess with us. The flavor is fruity and bready but nothing like a farmhouse ale. For a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself. Medium dry body. Quite forgettable. This is what you get, when you mess with us.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2005
Couleur orange, apparence presque translucide, peu de mousse, grosses bulles beiges pale. Armes de houblon typiquement anglais rappelant les feuilles de laurier et une touche dpices varies au travers dune honnte base de malt caramel. Peu de got en bouche, talement trs court. Prsence aqueuse, trs mince, carbonatation pratiquement inexistante, finale sche exposant la coriandre. Un autre produit peu convaincant en provenance de cette brasserie. chantillon en fut au American Beer Fest, Boston, 18 Juin 2005.

egajdzis (6276) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Poured a clear copper color with a large, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, spices, faint hoppiness, and yeast. Taste of strong dry yeast, citrus, and faint spicy hops. Overall its drinkable, but doesnt rock my world.

copper in color. Short-lasting carbonation. Watery, weak. Undistinguishable belgian elements with this one. Basic, boring. Back to the drawing board.
