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!

22oz bottle provided by Jale at Jackie O’s. Thanks for the Arizona tick and a unique beer. This beer just sounds terrible and if not for the Arizona tick I wouldn’t have tried it. However, this is an amazing surprise...Gusher warning. Pops with lots of thin foamy white head, light off white poor lacing. A lightly clear gold, not much to look at...The aroma is terrible, skunky, fake, as generic as it sounds. No hope for this at all...The taste is amazing. Its not amazing great or highly drinkable but it tastes EXACTLY like white chocolate. This is a very skillfully crafted beer. Its dominated by white chocolate, nothing else comes through, but luckily its not so sweet you can’t drink. If you like white chocolate and sweeter beers by all means give this a shot. Not close to being a great beer, but worth trying.

Bottle; interesting concept. Poured a little lighter than expected; a dull, honey gold with a big frothy head. Aroma of white chocolate, vegetables, must, herbs/spice, with a yeastiness that reminded me of the Bruery. Sort of lukewarm on the flavor. It was solid and interesting, but not bursting with flavor. Definitely pick up some chocolatey elements; hints of vegetable and yeast. Some sugariness. Aftertaste probably was the nicest element. Happy to have tried this.

1 liter cobalt blue swingtop bottle, graciously gifted to me by FlacoAlto. Pours a hazy golden straw color with a foamy, off-white head. Soapy sheets of lacing mostly rejoin the body. The aroma is unlike any that I’ve ever encountered before. The base shows like a Belgian Wit, lightly grainy with a slightly sour, lemony presence. From there, it turns biscuity, with notes of cookie dough and a distinct white chocolate glaze. The flavor follows that same path, dry and crisp from the wheat base, with a touch of tart citrus and lightly sweet biscuity notes. Light on palate, with a fizzy carbonation, this could easily be an enjoyable summertime session brew. Very interesting beer. It didn’t wow me, but I’m glad to have tried something so different.

sampled with the phoenix crew. flip top supplied by superdave70 (he has a ’thing’ for odd bottles?)

pours a hazy blonde color with a small white head which leaves a bit of spotty lacing. i get a lot of chocolate in the aroma. not white so much, but a lot of rich buttery chocolate along with nuttiness, fresh vanilla bean, grassy/skunky/noble hops and a blast of whole roasted coffee beans. the flavor is the same. a let down of sorts given the potency of the aroma. the nuttiness develops into distinct hazlenuts while the coffee and chocolate linger long into the aftertaste. medium to full bodied with a bunch of carbonation. insanely creamy butter-like mouth feel... i’m liking this one. interesting and highly quaffable....

Thanks ratebeef! Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of sweet chocolate and thats about it. Taste is same, heavy on the processed chocolate. Not exactly what I’m looking for in a beer.

Bottle received in trade from EyePeeAyBryan, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a fairly clear medium straw with a huge fluffy white head that fills half the glass amd takes forever to recede. Serious over carbonation from this bottle and it was opened at fridge temp. After everything settles down the aroma is lightly spicy with some light sweet males and a subtle but present chocolate aroma. The flavor is a mildly sugary sweet with a bit of sharp spice and a mild chocolate flavor. Medium body with an asinine level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Decent brew once everything settles down, not horribly complex, but a nice drinker.

10 karat gold with only a white ring for a head and little carbonation. Man, did that head hang on for dear life...never leaving the beer completely. The nose: undoubtedly the best feature of this one. Pure vanilla extract, buttermilk biscuit, and obvious white chocolate. A more lively beer might have awoke the taste buds. Unique and interesting.

On draft at the Yardhouse in Phoenix just before a red eye home. Pour was orangey-yellow, full white colored head with decent lacing. The aroma was strong banana, fruity esters, oranges, strong white-chocolate-coconutty type aroma. The flavor was full orangey hefe-banana type elements, ridiculously overly coconutted white chocolate flavors, much more the former than the latter - like coconut milk in this thing!. Sweetness accompanied by some spices, as this thing would be described by me as a coconut white ale more than anything else. Not great but interesting for a few sips anyway.

22oz bottle. Poured a mostly clear medium golden yellow with an off white head that left some spotty lacing. Never has a beer with white chocolate, very interesting. Nose hold some cocoa powder, some faint spices. Flavor reminds me of the white chocolate covered raisins with out the raisins........
