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!

Hazy gold beer. Not much head. Starts with a sharp fruity tang - orange with a splash of lemon. The mid has a sweet pineapple note which carries on to the dry finish. The white chocolate comes to the fore in the finish. Slighty strange, definitely unique and very drinkable. Kudos also for the fantastic big blue bottle -a keeper! Now - how about a White Chocolate Barleywine?

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, 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 !!!

On tap @ The State Bar. Clear golden pour with white foam. Some chocolate, vanilla extract, and a whole lot of sugar. Like, woah. Super sweet and malty. Flavor is like a prepackaged chocolate milk with a bunch of extra sugar and some vanilla. Tons of sweetness to this. Almost undrinkable to me with how sweet it is. No thanks.

Brewed at The Phoenix Ale Brewery. My first bottle exploded, so got another and fridged it immediately. Still has quite a poof on opening. Monster off-white foamy head which relaxes to a very hazy, somewhat dirty gold. Aroma on deep inhale actually suggests white chocolate. Med body or so. Quite carbonated. Flavor is essentially chocolate - and it’s not the dark thing. Not cocoa. But apparently cocoa butter is considered to be chocolate. Interesting stuff.

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.

Bomber poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of bread, milk chocolate and light marshmallow. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of cookie, milk chocolate and marshmallow with a smooth lingering chocolate finish.

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.
