3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled @ Backus’s Backdoor Bash courtesy of BeerLando.Ok first off this was a way cool cobalt blue , 1 liter, flip top bottle.I know it said whie chocolate but I was expecting the pour to be closer to a chocolate color, but it wasn’t.It poured a cloudy golden color with a soapy white head.The nose was funky with a slight detection of chocolate, citrus, and nuts.It definately was a unique beer.Flavor was funky with hints of chocolate and malts.The finish was tart.Definately an unusual 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 Rogue’s "donut beers." Again, though, I think Sonoran missed its opportunity by not making this a stout.

A: Pours a nice pale yellow hue tall fizzy head. Little retention and lace.
S: White chocolate for sure. Real not extract either. Light wheat notes round things out.
T: White chocolate extract, light vanilla, wheaty grain, and citrus, and a hint of tartness.
M: Light fizzy hefe like.
D: It’s kind of all over the place. I like the vanilla, wheat, and extract. The citrus takes it into left field.

Cloudy gold with a decent white head.
Aroma and flavor of bitter fruits and citrus and a bit watery.
not a bad beer but I expected alot more and whoever says they taste white chocolate is nuts.
I’ll keep the bottle though...almost the best part of the package.

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.

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 don’t think I would buy again. Just a curiosity.

From a bottle pours cloudy golden with a slight white head aroma of white chocolate taste of white chocolate and some bitter malt that lingers on the palate

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 isn’t something I have experienced in a beer this light in color.
