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!

Very interesting beer. Cloudy gold color with a small white head. Aroma is a bit funky with certain smells of white chocolate and yeast. Flavor might have a hint of white chocolate but not a lot. Some yeast and tart flavors are there...pretty creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle… Backus’s Backdoor Bash ‘08... Murky off-white ale. Lightly acidic, buttery nose provides additional notations of white chocolate and vanilla. Light to medium-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor offers a nice tart snap to go along with notes of vanilla, cocoa butter and white chocolate. Tart, tangy finish. Bottle courtesy of Beerlando!

1 liter flip-top bottle acquired in a couple of trades. Opened to a loud and audible pop and proceeded to pur with a huge sized white head. Settled down to a mdeium yellow color. Aromas of vanilla, some citrus, and if I stretched it, some lighter chocolate. Tastes follow suit. This one was just kinda thin and all around boring. I dont know if that fancy bottle lead me to expect something more, but I was somewhat dissapointed.

Tap @ O.H.S.O. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a white head. The Fucken thing does smell like white chocolate along with some herbal notes. That’s fucken weird. Weird sweet pale malty flavor with a blast of white chocolate. Not sure I like but it comes as advertised.

White chocolate in a hefeweizen, experienced at The Yard House, Scottsdale as not on at the Pinnacle showcase restauraunt for Sonoran. Better than described. I liked the white chocolate flavour, it came through. Why in a hefe? I don’t know, but places about town were putting various flavours in their hefe, Phoenix’s idea of extreme beer. The aroma of the sweet white chocolate. Not super drinkable, a sipper. Some lace. Looks like a hefe.

Tap at OHSO nano. Clear gold pour. Rich cocoa butter nose, milk chocolate, macadamia nut cookie. Taste is richer milk chocolate, some red apple. Heavy body for abv. Quite dessert heavy with white chocolate, vanilla, walnut praline. White Toblerone the beer. Yummy.

Pale yellow cloudy pour. The nose is lightly tart with a soft bit of pale malt sweetness through the middle. Softly sweet up front with an almost wheaty tartness. Oddly, the white chocolate aroma really does come out. Strange but not awful.

deyholla (8864) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Bottle shared by Jim, thanks! Poured a hazy pale gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a slight light fruit and citrus note with a sweet chocolate and grain note backing. Flavor had a slight sweet grain note with growing light chocolate and a hint of light fruit coming out in the finish.

Pour on tap, slightly hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, chocolate, coffee notes with an acidic, tart fruit note in there with a hint of grainy notes with a slight vanilla. Taste was a mix of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, slight lemon, hints of earth, slight grain, touch of yeast, finishing slightly sweet.

courtesy of tpd975 How does white chocolate mix with beer? Interesting concept, which I think Sonoran’s version of Southern Tier Creme Brulee. Unfortunately this attempt falls a little short. pours golden, white head. aroma, definitely has some white chocolate in there although sparse and really makes the highlight of this beer. flavors, weak chocolate palate, some lactic notes coupled with a citrus hops mouthfeel that takes away a lot of the chocolate aspect of the beer, turning everything in an overly citrusy melange. Enjoyed the chocolate aspect, but over done on the hop side especially when this beer only boast a mere 4.7%
