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. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head on it. Nose has a lot of cocoa in it, with some hints of light cream underneath. Tastes like cocoa in beer, and while I like the parts, the whole isnít working for me.

1 L bottle, via FlacoAlto. Poured a slightly hazy gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is really quite uncanny in it’s similarity to a real bar of white chocolate. There’s a bit of yeastiness and a pale maltiness. The flavor up front is more like a Golden Ale than anything, slight maltiness and a light hoppiness. The late finish really brings out the chocolate flavor though. The quality of the chocolate was similar to those Dove candy bars, where there’s that little bit of extra milky creaminess. Light bodied with light fizzy carbonation. Overall, a pretty interesting experiment if nothing else!

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.

In short: A unusual white chocolate beer that goes far beyond white chocolate. Weird, very unique
How: Bottle 1L, sent my way as a bonus(!) by hellbilly. Thanks a lot Joshua
The look: Cloudy golden-yellow body topped by a large white head with low retention
In long: Intriguing and almost offsetting nose of band-aid, herbs and vanilla beans. Surprisingly little white chocolate on the nose although very present in the taste. Taste starts with some weird fluffy yeasty notes, almost funky, hard to describe. Then a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, some band-aid. Rather grassy. Medium acidity coming out of nowhere. After-taste surprised me with lots of white chocolate going down my throat. Fluffy body, tickling carbonation. I actually liked that weird beer. I donít think I would had liked it if there was more beers like this but this one takes many extra points for originality. With all those black chocolate stouts itís about time someone does a white chocolate one. White power!!!

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........

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.

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.

Phoenix: Pours very light with virtually no head. The aroma is all white chocolate. The first sip is just like drinking sparkline white chocolate then you realize it is a beer as the light wheat and hops come on. Really smooth and light. Not an everyday drinker but a cool experience.
