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!

Bottle courtesy of rustychiles. Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Smells of perfume, grass, hay, some white chocolate. Tastes of perfumy funk, white chocolate, bananas, dry malt, spice, a touch of citrus. Interesting.

Drank from 22 oz bottle poured into snifter glass. Aroma- brilliant notes of chocolate and hints of booze. Smells like you are siffing a hersheys bar dipped in rum. Appearance- nothing special. Light golden color. Almost comes out flat. Taste- tasts like white chocolate beer. Amazing they can capture this taste without being too sweet or syrupy. Palate- dissapointing mouthfeel. Just get the booze with no chocolate. Overall- very impressed and good fun beer.

Surprisingly pretty good. Very well pronounced white chocolate taste, which somehow actually works with the beer. More of a novelty than anything else, but I would rate it higher than Rogueís "donut beers." Again, though, I think Sonoran missed its opportunity by not making this a stout.

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.

Tap at Boulders in Tempe. Such a strange brew. Nose of concentrated and natural white chocolate powder. A slightly cloudy beer like a Tripel. Taste of the same and sweet yogurt. Really something. The texture isnít something I have experienced in a beer this light in color.

22oz bottle. Pale golden tan color. Bubbly, effervescent head which fades into a creamy, oily, thin layer. Really unique, and quite refreshing, I can dig it. While most dessert beers tend to be sugary and cloying, this remains quite smooth and drinkable. Solid white chocolate tones, no mistaking it. A mild, almost lemony herbal twang evens it out, suppose the wheat and hops. Quite a cool concoction, one that captures big time flavor with sessionability. A little thin-bodied at times, but I think thatís also what makes it work.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Nothing like the bottle suggested. The aroma is almost all white chocolate, thereís also a hint of wheat. The taste is amazingly good, the white chocolate is there but itís not overwhelming or too sweet. Itís just a perfectly balanced wheat beer with a hint of white chocolate. Super good. The first couple batches of this they put out were really sour. Iím glad theyíve finally cleaned up their brewing process because this is a fantastic beer.

Serving: from bottle. Aroma: moderate chocolate and light raspberry(?). Appearance: small, frothy, white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, medium-yellow body. Taste: moderate cocoa initial flavor and lightly acidic finish with short duration. Palate: light body, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very chocolatey

Old bottle with white chocolate label. Poured a light caramel color with eggshell head. Very sweet with much less coffee flavor than expected. Very tasty reward for passing the bar.

Faint cocoa smell, peach color with a light white head. On the first sip it tastes fruity, the then on the swallow you takes the chocolate , little sweetness. Needs more ABV, the taste on the swallow makes you wish the white chocolate taste was there on the sip, more malt would help.
