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!

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.

Thanks ratebeef. Pale clear no head wtf the smells like chocolate but its not dark. Cake batter. Chocolate up front followed a grain with a lingering chocolate. Bonus points for being unique and surprising but I wouldn’t drink this everyday.

shared at our monthly bottle share. Labeled as Sonoran White Chocolate. The aroma off this golden hued pour was nice white chocolate and cookies. the flavor fell off a bit with more cookie and biscuit but less chocolate and sweetness as the nose had promised.

Bottle courtesy of the Merrit Island tasting hosted by mcbackus. The bottle was gorgeous by the way. If you are into that kinda thing! Flavor was sweet tarts, sour apples, and lemons. I was very hard pressed to find ANY chocolate here. Not a fan of the sour type beers, however, this would be a good intro.

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.

Bottle shared by emacgee - thanks, Ethan! Surprisingly light pour for a beer with these kinds of flavors going on. It’s no lie: there’s a bunch of white chocolate in the nose, along with some nice cherry almond, like a good Italian cookie or something. The body is very thin, alas, but hard to resist the flavors, making it sad that they wash out a bit in the finish.

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.

Reviewed 9/12/2009 (bottle): Pours a golden orangish colored body, with a big white head, quickly diminishing. Spicy aroma, some orange citrus. Sweet spices strongly present, a little hoppy. Not too strong overall an aroma. Carbonated taste, smooth, strong chocolate taste. White chocolate. Refreshing. Interesting combo of white chocolate and not stout.

bb (7754) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 13, 2010
Draft. Golden-amber beer with a whitish head. White chocolate aroma with malt. Orange and white chocolate flavor with malt. Medium bodied. orange and white chocolate lingers with a bit of malt (and possibly wheat). Different, but gets a bit tiring.
