COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

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.

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.

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.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2008
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!

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.

GT (9918) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 9, 2013
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.

22 oz bottle. Straight from Phoenix. Thanks Timo A! Hazy golden color with a tiny white head. White chocolate, tropical fruits, sweetness and some maltiness in the aroma. Malt, some dryness, mild bitterness and some sweetness. The flavor is rather mild. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Bottle that I brought to the Rosso release at Captain Lawrence. Pours a hazy gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Smells almost exactly like peanut M&Ms. Medium bodied, sweet and with a light faint tartness. Candy and milk chocolate. A little bit sour and tart on the finish. Yummy and tangy. I really liked this one and was quite surprised at how good it was.

Bottle as Wht Chclt. Aromatic first shows little chocolate though the flavor is a tootsie roll wit. Interesting but not great. Aroma eventually opens up a little. Body is way too carbonated and takes away from the overall.
