Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Across America – Sweet Sunny South

We’re getting closer and closer to Spring, which means that a review of a bright table beer is in order. As mentioned in a bunch of blog posts before, I post about six months in advance in case work gets busy and I can’t get to posting. This beer was part of the Beer Camp mixed six-pack last year.


ABV: 4.9%

Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The south holds strong to its traditional flavors—tea, honey-sweet peaches and corn grits—so we looked at those culinary cues for this southern-inspired table beer. With a golden grainy malt body and complex tangy finish from the fruit, tea and herbs, Sweet Sunny South is perfect for sultry summer sipping”

Random: It’s also getting closer to barbecue season.

The beer poured with a half a finger of white head. It dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was hazy and yellow with moderate carbonation. On the nose, I picked up notes a lot of fruit. Specifically there was guava, pineapple and papaya. There was also a floral characteristic along with honey that went into lemon. The taste was just as bright with a lot of fruit and lemon pith. It went into wildflowers and floral tea. The body was thin with moderate carbonation. It had a quick floral and wildflower honey finish. I don’t remember how much I paid for this beer, but it had some good flavor and was easy to throw back. It was one of the high points of the mixed pack.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
