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!

22 oz bottle. Pours golden yellow with no head. Sticky sweet chocolate aromas. An odd beer, yet creative, but this one doesn’t work for me.

Holy crap weird. When bartender poured thought taps messed up. Looks like crappy pale lager but smells like white chocolate. Tastes of white chocolate, herbal, weird medicine, and rubbing alcohol. Not my thing but way to think outside box

Bizarre beer shared by emacgee. Light yellow pour with white head. Aroma of white chocolate, some almonds, some fruit... slight peach? Taste reminiscent of candied almonds. An extra point for being unique.

Golden in color with a bit of white head. Slight chocolatey aroma, definitive white chocolate flavor. Quite interesting, and surprisingly chocolatey flavor that goes decently with the beer.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Sampled at Hellbilly’s Hellraiser II. Flip top bottle courtesy of SuperDave. Pours a semi-hazy honey gold with minimal white head. Nose is vanilla, coffee and hazelnut. Palate is hazelnut upfront with cocoa butter and vanilla in the finish. Pretty sweet brew that would be good for a nightcap. Interesting beer – thanks for sharing Dave.

(22 oz bottle). Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is of chocolate!. Taste is sweet with some hopiness. Finish is bitter with some yeastiness. Interesting brew, but I can only drink a few sips. Chocolate flavor is well done and intense.

bottle thanks to Dave! Pours hazy light orange with a thin white head. Aroma is light cocoa, wheat, thin citrus notes. Flavor is creamy oat and wheat malts, light citrus hops and a nice clean cocoa that is only semi-sweet in the finish. This actually works well and isn’t at all as gimmicky as it sounds. The mouthfeel and thin cocoa in the finish only complement the thin citrus. Reminds me of the German chocolate oranges.
