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!

Pours an orange golden into pint serving. Tastes and smells like those odd white chocolate chips from Nestle with just enough vegetation, caramel and wheat off to the side to balance it somehow.

Phoenix: Pours very light with virtually no head. The aroma is all white chocolate. The first sip is just like drinking sparkline white chocolate then you realize it is a beer as the light wheat and hops come on. Really smooth and light. Not an everyday drinker but a cool experience.

Wow, how can the aroma be anything but a 10? White chocolate, burnt sugar, and vanilla eminate. Golden color with milky white foam that leaves nice lacing. Taste matches the aroma with residual sweetness and a touch of caramel. Some hop bitterness shows up, but long after the beer is gone. Funny thing is, despite it being very close to white chocolate in both taste and aroma, I donít think I would buy again. Just a curiosity.

Pours a cloudy golden. No head whatsoever. Aromas of white chocolate, cocoa, malt and sugar. Initial flavor is of white chocolate, a nice semi hoppy pale flavor, sugar, milk and cream. Mouthfeel is smooth and semi silky. Definitely a different beer. The white chocolate is a nice additive. This is definitely a beer worth trying.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Nothing like the bottle suggested. The aroma is almost all white chocolate, thereís also a hint of wheat. The taste is amazingly good, the white chocolate is there but itís not overwhelming or too sweet. Itís just a perfectly balanced wheat beer with a hint of white chocolate. Super good. The first couple batches of this they put out were really sour. Iím glad theyíve finally cleaned up their brewing process because this is a fantastic beer.

Draft at Whole Foods Chandler. Pours golden with half an inch of white foam. Smells a bit like a tootsie roll on the nose. This beer tastes just like white chocolate without being cloying or lingering to long on the palate. Really a well-crafted beer.

puch in phx; this is one unique beer. bottle stated white chocolate ale. about the most accurate/unique aroma ever - it was white chocolate!! not sure how they did it. taste was good and had the white chocolate subtle taste. this would be best as a taster or 12 ozer; this was a bomber and by end, the white chocolate got to be too sweet, but tasty and a very unique beer!

Poured up on tap at Taste of Tops with with clear gold body and tiny white head. The bold aroma offers up saltine cracker, crusty caramel and chocolate. The taste is overly sweet and Iím damn glad I only have invested in a 6oz pour as opposed to a whole bottle. I get sugary malt sweetness some chocolate and sugary sweet cream soda. Hmmm?

5/16/11. Bomber labeled "White Chocolate Ale" courtesy fata2683! Light golden pour with a frothy off-white head that lasts. This is very interesting. Bright wheat aroma hits at first with lemon peel and soft wheat malts but then lingers with a definite chocolate touch. Slightly tart lemon wheat brew flavor hits first but the lingering flavor is definitely smooth, almost buttery white chocolate. Quite interesting and quite nice!

White Chocolate Ale Bottle thanks to Dionysus. Cloudy gold. Fluffy white head. Nose/taste of white chocolate, wheat, hops and cocoa. The white chocolate really shines through on this one. Medium body. Well done.
