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!

Poured straw yellow with giant white head. Nose is littered with cocoa. Taste is bizarre, not bad, but weird, body is just too thin for what tastes like silky white chocolate. Had this been a stout it might have been really good.

22 oz bottle: slightly hazy orange, straw…thing, ivory cream around the edges of the glass…Dusty, chocolate aroma with hints of raspberries, honey and pale malts. Palate is smooth and a touch creamy with a lingering stale and vegetal bitterness. Soft texture on the tongue…the flavors are incredibly unique: white chocolate, doughy yeast, bitter anise, and vegetables. A fun experience, though I probably wouldn’t get a second one.

Thanks ratebeef! Clear golden pour with a small bubbly white head that fades fast. Nose is vanilla beans, chocolate chips and cake batter. Fuck yeah it's my birthday. Flavor is very similar but not as bright as the aroma and sort of a thin palate. Can definitely pick out the pale malts in this beer. Pretty interesting though and glad to have tried it.

Thanks Dakine! Pale cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is a "chemical" white chocolate. Taste is wheat beer with a medicine flavoring. dry. Nice lacing.

pepsican (1419) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2009
hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is sour citrus and chocolate. Flavor is skunky, more citrus, a touch of chocolate, and a bit of pickle brine. Mehhhhh

Sampled @ Backus’s Backdoor Bash courtesy of BeerLando.Ok first off this was a way cool cobalt blue , 1 liter, flip top bottle.I know it said whie chocolate but I was expecting the pour to be closer to a chocolate color, but it wasn’t.It poured a cloudy golden color with a soapy white head.The nose was funky with a slight detection of chocolate, citrus, and nuts.It definately was a unique beer.Flavor was funky with hints of chocolate and malts.The finish was tart.Definately an unusual beer.

Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Aroma and flavor of bitter fruits and citrus and a bit watery. not a bad beer but I expected alot more and whoever says they taste white chocolate is nuts. I’ll keep the bottle though...almost the best part of the package.

Strange brew. On tap at Boulders. Pours a hazy golden color with a trim white head. Smells and tastes of white chocolate, vanilla yogurt, and pear. More of a novelty than a balanced beer, but certainly worth a try.

A: Pours a nice pale yellow hue tall fizzy head. Little retention and lace. S: White chocolate for sure. Real not extract either. Light wheat notes round things out. T: White chocolate extract, light vanilla, wheaty grain, and citrus, and a hint of tartness. M: Light fizzy hefe like. D: It’s kind of all over the place. I like the vanilla, wheat, and extract. The citrus takes it into left field.

Thanks to Beerlando for the taste, by way of FlacoAlto. Slightly cloudy, orange-tinged yellow color. Full of lemons with just a hint of chocolate flavor. Lots of bubbly carbonation round out this tasty brew.
