3.2/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

APPEARANCE: The color is very nice, a deep, dark orange. Minimal lacing disappears quickly and not much lacing develops.

SMELL: Very citrusy with a solid dose of grassiness as well. Some light breadiness and a little sweet malt is also noticeable.

TASTE: The taste and aroma do not match up much at all with the exception of some lemon and grapefruit in the taste. Tart, green apple is the more dominant flavor here along with a little spice and sour to finish it off.

MOUTHFEEL: Light in body with a mild pucker that shows up towards the end of the sip. Early on, it is crisp, clean and quite sparkly. Also, the pucker subsides as the beer warms.

OVERALL: This is a good, but not great beer. It is a much more conservative effort than I'm used to from Avery, but for some that may be a good thing.

The Karma from Avery is not one of my favorite. The beer comes across more like an apple wine or something. The color is amber with thin white head that is not lacing. The scent is Belgium twangy....fermented fruit. The taste has the Belgian sweetness to it. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is ok....I would not go out of my way to drink it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light golden brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains Belgian yeast, caramelized malts, some fruit and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out mildly sweet with flavors of caramel and fruit. Then some breadiness comes in Belgian yeast and a thin malt character. The hops presence is mild and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, there are definitely better beers in the style.
