She bestows upon you the ease of nature’s bounty in every sip, a meandering path of effortless drinkability. She is carefully crafted using only the finest N.C. grown and malted grains, and a unique varietal of heirloom corn for which she is named. Each moment you spend with her reveals a balanced character of caramel and sweet corn that gives way to an essence of dark cherry that lingers. She leaves your mind to wonder, your troubles to melt away...
She is forever your Painted Fortune.

Look: It pours amber with slight haze and a white head. Head retention is very good.

Smell: It has a fairly strong corn smell. There is also some grainy sweetness with low apple.

Taste: It has grainy sweet flavors with some apple and a bit of corn well into the background. There are slight notes of floral.

Feel: It is medium bodied with a high level of carbonation. The grainy sweetness runs well into the finish.

Overall, a beer that is quite sweet with a quite of bit of apple flavor.

12 oz can, apparently lacking a date stamp, from NC. The can proclaims Bhramari but also says "Brewed and canned by Hivemind Brewing Co." Great artwork on the can.
Looks great upon pouring, with a deep, copper colored body topped by a good size, bone colored head. Unfortunately, the head soon dies to a partial coat.
Aroma: OK aroma features spicy hops with some subtleties.
The flavor is better, sweeter and more complex than the aroma suggests. This has more caramel malts, corn and floral notes, as well as higher sweetness, than the typical California Common. It also has a bit less dryness and a slightly fuller body.
Overall: recommended and distinct version of this style.

Not much flavor. Made with some corn but that doesn’t come through. More near a Kolsh.
