Karma ~ Avery

Appearance: orange amber with a soft pithy head which fades into a blanket. Swirls with some improvement.

Nose: orange, peach, and pineapple. Sweet up front, bitter in the back. Pineapple is most dominant. Faint tropical essence adds some cantaloupe to the mix. Grass and skins in the back.

Palate: sweet, smooth, and clean; almost too clean. Mixed in is a massive dose of doughy yeasty goodness in the back. Very bright; sparkles atop the tongue. Peaches and pineapple are lightly stewed and left to cool. Orange dough and orange honey comingle. Dough lends a chewy yet light quality to overall mouthfeel reminiscent of a Belgian-style blonde more so than a Tripel. Green grass top and back along with pineapple skins. Flavors blend together relatively well.

Final Thoughts: the Karma from Avery showed a lot of potential but never quite lived up to it. Good for sure, but not great nor really what one would expect out of her style qualifications. As a Belgian-tinged sessionable quaffer, yes. Contemplative, no.
