Tap at OHSO nano. Clear gold pour. Rich cocoa butter nose, milk chocolate, macadamia nut cookie. Taste is richer milk chocolate, some red apple. Heavy body for abv. Quite dessert heavy with white chocolate, vanilla, walnut praline. White Toblerone the beer. Yummy.

Phoenix Bevmo bottle labeled as Sonoran White Chocolate ale. Pours a slightly hazy, gold color with bubbly carbonation and a short white head. Really nice chocolate aroma that reminds of cocoa powder and maybe a little marzipan too. You really get the sweeter white chocolate up front in the flavor but it still has a touch of bitterness too from some baking chocolate. Well done, with lots of character.

This was NOT bad at all. It reminded me a lot of a paler version of Brasserie Bourganel Biere au Nougat. Clean, caramel/chocolate notes, restrained sweetness, and a fairly dry finish. It was enjoyable in small doses.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 Sampled at the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild 2008 Strong Beer Fest, on February 17, at the Mesa Amphitheatre. Pours a very light pale gold, with a giant creamy long lasting white head. Light aromas of chocolate and vanilla. Flavor is similar. Very nice and refreshing.

I’m sorry, but I just had to try this. on tap at 1702. A pale straw color with no real head. Aroma is lacking, but that is because it is all in the flavor. I really don’t get any malt, just white chocolate. that is fine. it is really good. I kind of like weird beers and this is weird. but good, nice thinking out of the box from an AZ brewer.

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.

22oz bottle: Just got this in the new bottle format from these guys... being a native Arizonan helps the score, root for the local guys... this is a really easy drinker... once the carbonation settles, the aromas of the sweetened white chocolate abound... the appearance is clear golden creaminess with a mild head... the flavor is white chocolate with some underlying fruit esters... the palate is light, but not watery it is full with flavor... this is a unique brew, you may not want it all the time, but I see it having its place for dessert with some friends. Definately worth trying!!!

White chocolate in a hefeweizen, experienced at The Yard House, Scottsdale as not on at the Pinnacle showcase restauraunt for Sonoran. Better than described. I liked the white chocolate flavour, it came through. Why in a hefe? I don’t know, but places about town were putting various flavours in their hefe, Phoenix’s idea of extreme beer. The aroma of the sweet white chocolate. Not super drinkable, a sipper. Some lace. Looks like a hefe.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle.
Clear yellow with a thick fluffy white head, great retention, sticky lace.
Aroma is chocolate, chocolate, chocoate. A little bit of dough hanging out underneath gives it that just-out-of-the-oven cookie feel. A slight touch of yeast appears with agitation.
Flavor is vanilla ice cream with Hershey kiss white chocolate sprinkled on top, but there is an underlying wheaty character that gives it some drieness and balances it out.
