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!

Many thanks to StefanSD for this great beer!
Rated as "White Chocolate Ale", 22 fl.oz. (651ml), BB 04.09.2014 The beer is orange-golden in the glass, great nose of chocolate and toffee / nougat. The beer starts as the nose promises, but not so sweet. Great aroma of chocolate and nougat together with a smooth, not too sweet and not too bitter wheat beer. The aftertaste is smooth, great combination of nougat and chocolate together with wheat ale hints and a moderate bitterness.
Very great brew! I like this combination. --> 12/12/11/12

Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a hazy straw coour with a thin white head. The aroma is neutral veggie. The flavour is neutral veggie herb with a watery neutral palate. Chocolate?? White, dark? Nothing at all really and no flavour.

In short: A unusual white chocolate beer that goes far beyond white chocolate. Weird, very unique
How: Bottle 1L, sent my way as a bonus(!) by hellbilly. Thanks a lot Joshua
The look: Cloudy golden-yellow body topped by a large white head with low retention
In long: Intriguing and almost offsetting nose of band-aid, herbs and vanilla beans. Surprisingly little white chocolate on the nose although very present in the taste. Taste starts with some weird fluffy yeasty notes, almost funky, hard to describe. Then a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, some band-aid. Rather grassy. Medium acidity coming out of nowhere. After-taste surprised me with lots of white chocolate going down my throat. Fluffy body, tickling carbonation. I actually liked that weird beer. I donít think I would had liked it if there was more beers like this but this one takes many extra points for originality. With all those black chocolate stouts itís about time someone does a white chocolate one. White power!!!

Beer poured a semi-dark yellow color, but much lighter than I was expecting. I donít know why, but when I read chocolate on the label I was thinking this would be a porter or stout. The smell is like hot chocolate. The label says white chocolate and it definitely smells like milk chocolate. The beer also tastes like cooled down hot chocolate. While that sounds bad, the beer is actually very tasty. I have read that this beer is hit or miss on quality control, but mine was definitely a hit. I would recommend it to anyone.

Bottle. Wow. This would throw a lot of people for a loop in a blind taster. Golden and hazy, with the visuals of a witbier, the chocolate syrup flavor profile comes off completely unexpectedly if it werenít for the name and deScription. Tastes like a símore. (#6044, 10/10/2015)

On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy cocoa powder and light vanilla...maybe a touch of grass. It?s a transparent dull gold with a small white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some spotty lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of wheat. The finish has light-moderate sweet cocoa powder and vanilla. It?s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, it?s probably a good thing I got a 4oz sample. I like chocolate, but straight cocoa powder generally wears on me quickly.

(22oz bottle thanks to jkwalking05) clear pale yellow with nice thick ring of bubbles. Nose of white chocolate and butterscotch. Taste of white chocolate, kaopectate (a chalky, gritty diarrhea medicine for those who donít remember), milk of magnesia, medicinal with lightly carbonated body. What a weird beer.

Bottle from hellbilly. Thanks man! The aroma is an interesting mix of soft white chocolate, almonds, and dusty yeast. Hazy light orange yellow pour with a big fizzy head that settles to a ring. Flavors of white chocolate, vanilla, and dusty yeast. Super interesting. Very lively carbonation on top of a thin body give it a little soda effect, but not in a bad extract syrup fruit or flavored beer kind of way.
