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!

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...

Bottle received as extra in trade. Thank you Daknole! Labeled white Chocolate Ale. Pours tiny hazy golden with a small frothy white head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is, well, strange with unfermented grains, low quality white chocolate, cereal, lemon zest, soil, hay and milk duds. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter and tiny sour with grains, crackers, cereal, lemon juice, vanilla beans, hay, dry soil and possibly hints of white chocolate if you really try hard to find it. Mouthfeel is crisp, phenolic astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter and tiny sour with grains, cereal, hay, dry soil and lemon zest. Not my cup of tea at all. Hopefully i’ll get the chance to see what Arizona really has to offer at some point.

Bottle at Colin And The Vikings in Nol 2014-03-22. Thanks to Alex. Clear pale golden beer with a small offwhite head. Slightly roasted aroma, herbal, caramel, fruity notes. Sourish flavor, really strange and hard to define. No sign of chocolate.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head on it. Nose has a lot of cocoa in it, with some hints of light cream underneath. Tastes like cocoa in beer, and while I like the parts, the whole isn’t working for me.

Location: Draft at O.H.S.O., 3/8/14, as White Chocolate

Aroma: The nose is sweet and malty, white chocolate is very present here
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden color with a pretty decent sized white head on it
Flavor: The taste is sweet and chocolaty, without enough balance to it
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a soft carbonation, and a smooth, creamy finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a nice beer, but it was too sweet for me. Well-made though. No complaints, I’m just not the target market.

Smell and taste of while chocolate with wheat undertones. A very balanced beer. Pours a cloudy yellow with a nice white head, I have had this in 12oz 22oz and on Tap. Can not wait to go back to AZ to get more.

Lubiere (10453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2014
A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with light vanilla notes, not bad. In mouth, a smooth fruity chocolate malt with light vanilla, oily mouth feel, OK.

Slightly hazy golden pour with small white head. Aroma of wheat, vanilla and white chocolate. Taste of white chocolate, wheat, vanilla and very faint citrus. Medium carbonation, medium bodied. I love white chocolate so I really enjoyed this unique beer.

Thanks to erzengel for sharing! Pours a hazy dull orange/yellow with a small tan head. The smell is just like circus peanuts, some white chocolate, biscuits. The taste is liquified circus peanuts, graham crackers, some fruit ending a bit dry. light/medium in body.
