COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cordillera Blanca (kawr-dl-yair-uh) or White Mountains, loosely translated to English, is the newest additions to the Sonoran Brewing line of products. This White Chocolate Ale is light, refreshing, and completely unique! Like most fine chocolates, this brew has delicate aroma and the subtle taste of White Chocolate that is truly astonishing!

Poors amber with fast dissipating head. Little aroma even though I let it warm up. Mostly flavorless with a small hint of chocolate. Very watery. Don’t waste your money on trying this one.

Golden in color with a bit of white head. Slight chocolatey aroma, definitive white chocolate flavor. Quite interesting, and surprisingly chocolatey flavor that goes decently with the beer.

Pailhead (4900) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy cocoa powder and light vanilla...maybe a touch of grass. It?s a transparent dull gold with a small white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some spotty lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of wheat. The finish has light-moderate sweet cocoa powder and vanilla. It?s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, it?s probably a good thing I got a 4oz sample. I like chocolate, but straight cocoa powder generally wears on me quickly.

Hanuta06 (335) - Washington, USA - APR 18, 2014
Serving: from bottle. Aroma: moderate chocolate and light raspberry(?). Appearance: small, frothy, white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, medium-yellow body. Taste: moderate cocoa initial flavor and lightly acidic finish with short duration. Palate: light body, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very chocolatey

Theydon_Bois (9148) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle, thanks to _Angst_, split at Colin and the Vikings tasting, Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14 as Sonoran White Chocolate Ale. Hazed orange with a moderate off white covering. Nose is bitter fruits, spie, citric peel, straw. Taste comprises pale malts, citrus, pretty bland, lemon rind, grassy. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Very mediocre stuff no subtle taste of white chocolate, tased like an astonishingly average pale lager !!!

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Phoenix. Pours a clear gold color with a white head. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and pale malts. Sweet and sugary. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. I’m told this is very popular out here. I liked the first few sips but got sick of it quickly. Wouldn’t recommend more than a taster.

Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a hazy straw coour with a thin white head. The aroma is neutral veggie. The flavour is neutral veggie herb with a watery neutral palate. Chocolate?? White, dark? Nothing at all really and no flavour.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 Doft: min första fråga är vart tog den vita chokladen vägen? Enligt text så lovar flaskan mer än innehållet. Jag känner mig lurad som kund men är glad att jag kan skriva ner detta intressanta fynd. Smak: ölen är lite frågetecken kring hur om den är söt eller inte. Funderar fortfarande över vart min vita choklad är... :S BESVIKEN...
