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!

Monalovesbeer's rating

Monalovesbeer (21) - - NOV 21, 2012
Mmmmmmmmm aroma is pure dessert. White chocolate, dough and marshmallows. Served in a snifter from a bottle. Pours with almost no head and a very clear pale champagne color. It is astonishing to me that they are able to make this so desert-like but still easy to drink. Intense sweet white chocolate and vanilla flavor with a hint of lemon and clove, finishes surprisingly clean. I love the hit of sweetness and clean finish - no syrup here. Very light and delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a 22 oz bottle stating: Brewed and bottled for the Sonoran Brewing Co by the Phoenix Ale Brewery, Phoenix, AZ. Poured into a New Belgium stem glass; Pours light gold with head and lace. Aroma of white chocolate and amber malts. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of white chocolate, cream soda, vanilla, grains. I had this brew at least once before, possibly from a different brewer, around 2006, from the cool retail store in the middle of the south Arizona desert near Organ Pipe Cactus Natl Park. It was unique and tasty then, and remains so today.

Bottle sample at Beer Study bottle share in Durham as WHT CHCLT Ale. hazy golden yellow color. Aroma really is white chocolate. Taste is a bit more cocoa and medicine.

ajnepple (6121) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2017
Pint at Casey Moores 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.

mcberko (16595) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
On tap at Phoenix Ale Brewery, pours a cloudy golden with a medium white head. Aroma brings out pure white chocolate upfront, not much else. Flavour is along the same lines, with semi-sweet white chocolate notes and a subtle soft pillow wheat base. Nice gimmick beer - works pretty well.

A deep, rich aroma leads into a light bubbly head, followed by a heavy white chocolate malt body. Savory finish. Better dessert than a candy bar.

trapped (2849) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 26, 2016
Bottle, thanks to Misterburd. Pours cloudy golden yellow with small off-white foamy head, chocolate malt aroma, high carbonation, lightly bitter, strong white chocolate taste, thin body, long chocolate finish. Very strange feeling, its also a bit heavy.

65 cl bottle. BBE 25.06.2016.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Lots of white chocolate on the nose, mild hops, malty notes, earthy. Bitter malt on the flavor, white chocolate, spice notes and faint wood. Quite mellow flavor compared to the nice aroma.

22 oz bottle. Straight from Phoenix. Thanks Timo A! Hazy golden color with a tiny white head. White chocolate, tropical fruits, sweetness and some maltiness in the aroma. Malt, some dryness, mild bitterness and some sweetness. The flavor is rather mild. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
