3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strange brew. On tap at Boulders. Pours a hazy golden color with a trim white head. Smells and tastes of white chocolate, vanilla yogurt, and pear. More of a novelty than a balanced beer, but certainly worth a try.

Thanks to Beerlando for the taste, by way of FlacoAlto. Slightly cloudy, orange-tinged yellow color. Full of lemons with just a hint of chocolate flavor. Lots of bubbly carbonation round out this tasty brew.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours to a clear pale yellow straw colored body with a medium, frothy white head. The aroma shows white chocolate, light roasted cocoa beans, light sweet pale malt. Taste shows a dry white chocolate, light burnt cocoa beans, hints of vanilla and sweet sugar. I’m surprised by how nicely the white chocolate flavor comes through in the flavor - not at all overwhelmed by any hops or malt flavors. Light bodied, crisp carbonation, finishes with some extended white chocolate and dry cocoa notes. Very nice; would go well as a desert beer.

Surprisingly pretty good. Very well pronounced white chocolate taste, which somehow actually works with the beer. More of a novelty than anything else, but I would rate it higher than Rogueís "donut beers." Again, though, I think Sonoran missed its opportunity by not making this a stout.

Tap at Boulders in Tempe. Such a strange brew. Nose of concentrated and natural white chocolate powder. A slightly cloudy beer like a Tripel. Taste of the same and sweet yogurt. Really something. The texture isnít something I have experienced in a beer this light in color.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Pint on tap. It points for creativity...but itís definitely NOT subtle. Iím not really a fan of "chocolate" beers anyway, but this one is especially gimicky to me. Itís got pretty light body, and doesnít look or smell offensive, but I just donít like the taste.

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.

Bottle courtesy of the Merrit Island tasting hosted by mcbackus. The bottle was gorgeous by the way. If you are into that kinda thing! Flavor was sweet tarts, sour apples, and lemons. I was very hard pressed to find ANY chocolate here. Not a fan of the sour type beers, however, this would be a good intro.
