drowland (9161) - Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2011
5/16/11. Bomber labeled "White Chocolate Ale" courtesy fata2683! Light golden pour with a frothy off-white head that lasts. This is very interesting. Bright wheat aroma hits at first with lemon peel and soft wheat malts but then lingers with a definite chocolate touch. Slightly tart lemon wheat brew flavor hits first but the lingering flavor is definitely smooth, almost buttery white chocolate. Quite interesting and quite nice!

Poured up on tap at Taste of Tops with with clear gold body and tiny white head. The bold aroma offers up saltine cracker, crusty caramel and chocolate. The taste is overly sweet and I’m damn glad I only have invested in a 6oz pour as opposed to a whole bottle. I get sugary malt sweetness some chocolate and sugary sweet cream soda. Hmmm?

Bottle thanks to jkwalking05. Pours with a large white head over a hazed golden body. Aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla bean and cocoa. Taste is cream soda, lots of vanilla bean and some cola notes. Lively bubbles. Interesting!

ajnepple (7200) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Pint at Casey Moore’s Oyster House, listed as something like "Sonoran White Chocolate Ale". Clear golden appearance with a dissipating white head. Aroma of flavor of big chocolate, vanilla, toasted coconut, wheat and a touch of peppermint. Light to medium body with a sweet finish. OK.

3.4
kramer (6908) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2008
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!

Bottle:   Pale straw, lively carbonation, large sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Mealy nose, faint hazelnut.   Very airy on the tongue.   Minor mocha latte with hazelnuts.   BURP!   Seems overcarbonated.   White Chocolate?   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   All the sweetness seems artificial.   Seems like a watered down froo froo coffee, with hazelnuts.   Tastes better than it smells.   Also seems like it could be really poor white chocolate that has been uncovered in the cupboard for a few years.   Sort of a stale white chocolate background. Meh...
