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!

draft, this is weird. Chocolate flavors in a pale ale that was light. Interesting for sure.

Marheb (4916) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Un liquide doré massivement carbonaté qui a la texture d’un soda et le profil gustatif est hyper vanillé.. C’est réussi dans la mesure où l’objectif est de reproduire le crème soda. Je m’en serais passé.

Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The smell is white chocolate, weird, butter, sweet, and cocoa. The look is golden in color, thin white head, and clear. The taste is sweet, chocolate, weird, vanilla, and cream.

Thanks hellbilly for the extra. Pours a light mildly hazy yellow with a two finger frothy white head. The nose is very interesting and touts what it claims, white chocolate, sweet, cherry almond, earthy. The flavor was sweet and showed lots of white chocolate, mild crisp bite. The palate is crisp and sweet. Very interesting brew.

_angst_ (4499) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle received as extra in trade. Thank you Daknole! Labeled white Chocolate Ale. Pours tiny hazy golden with a small frothy white head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is, well, strange with unfermented grains, low quality white chocolate, cereal, lemon zest, soil, hay and milk duds. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny bitter and tiny sour with grains, crackers, cereal, lemon juice, vanilla beans, hay, dry soil and possibly hints of white chocolate if you really try hard to find it. Mouthfeel is crisp, phenolic astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter and tiny sour with grains, cereal, hay, dry soil and lemon zest. Not my cup of tea at all. Hopefully i’ll get the chance to see what Arizona really has to offer at some point.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head on it. Nose has a lot of cocoa in it, with some hints of light cream underneath. Tastes like cocoa in beer, and while I like the parts, the whole isn’t working for me.

DiarmaidBHK (4189) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Draft at Whole Foods Chandler. Pours golden with half an inch of white foam. Smells a bit like a tootsie roll on the nose. This beer tastes just like white chocolate without being cloying or lingering to long on the palate. Really a well-crafted beer.

FlacoAlto (4152) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Sampled on tap at 1702, Tucson AZ
Arrives from the tap with a lightly hazy, light gold color and is topped by a thin pale head. The nose mostly has beer-like notes to it with a light, sweet, white-chocolate note to it that provides more a perceived sweetness in the aroma than anything.

The taste is much like a clean, simple blond beer with white chocolate added. Very light hop character and a light malt character make this simplistic and quaffable. It has quite a light mouthfeel, though I wouldn’t say it was watery. The white-chocolate adds a sort of perfume-like note as well as a touch of vanilla notes. Not bad, but not really my cup of tea, this might have been really interesting if the base beer was more interesting (I am imagining a thick, white chocolate infused stout).
