Smell and taste of while chocolate with wheat undertones. A very balanced beer. Pours a cloudy yellow with a nice white head, I have had this in 12oz 22oz and on Tap. Can not wait to go back to AZ to get more. 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!

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. teamrunkle (381) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2016 This one one of the best beers I have ever had. It was different and delicious. Layers of white chocolate all through it. dez1974 (8) - California, USA - JUN 15, 2015 does not count
right out the top you get the white chocolate that covers your nose, then the malts combine the 2 flavors into a very enjoyable beer. easy drinking all the way.

This beer has a nice reasonable chocolate flavor. Not too sweet or overwhelming. Not something you'd drink all the time either.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 This brew is a masterpiece. Pours with a pale almost creamy yellow color throwing off a shortlived spritzy froth. Minimal lacing with beachball sized spattering. Beautiful aromas of fresh cocoa and a bit of coffee essence. Smells like brownies. Light to medium nectar with lively carbonation that turns to CREAM on the palate. Nice! This brew is not sweet at all with huge flavors of brownies and coffee although on the lean side. The finish is bittered mildly and is dry with lingering chocolate biscuit essence. I would agree with the commercial description. Well done! vandc01 (416) - North Branch, USA - FEB 4, 2014

Golden pour with little carbonation. Head went away quickly.
Aroma is spot on - white chocolate immediately up front and on the finish. If the goal was white chocolate, then they nailed it.
Very low abv, so this would be an excellent desert beer.

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 Nat’l Park. It was unique and tasty then, and remains so today. lucklys (62) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Had I known that such a thing as chocolate beer existed, I may have learned to enjoy beer much quicker and easier. My lovely fiance plucked this beauty off of the shelves for me earlier this week and I have been both slightly frightened and anxiously curious to try it. ---
There’s not a whole lot to say about the color, as it’s your typical burnt gold, thin and watery-looking with very little haziness. But the head? That is the best head I have ever seen. Can’t beat 3-fingers thick. Thick, fluffy, white, and it stuck around for a good long while, losing very little weight as I let it sit. I took about 10 photos of it and would put them in my wallet to show off if I had a wallet. Or anyone to show them to. Or if I was a crazy person...I’m not crazy. ---
As I got over the awesomeness of the foam, actually, even before I became preoccupied with the foam...CHOCOLATE! Seriously, my nose was overcome with chocolate. I buried my nose in the glass and immediately was overcome with warmth and happiness; it was like holding a mug of hot chocolate on a freezing winter night. Only everything was literally in reverse. Either way, the smell was unmistakably white chocolate and cocoa powder with a light hint of wheat. ---
Once it was in my mouth, it more closely resembled the aftertaste of dark chocolate but in a lighter chocolate. To make more sense, it was a tart white chocolate. And although the ale has quite a thin mouth feel, it never really falls off into the watery category. Closely followed by the immensely pleasurable chocolate is the light wheat again. The best part about this beer was that the chocolate was not overwhelming and allowed it to taste like a hefeweizen infused with chocolate, rather than chocolate dipped in beer. ---
I would definitely try this again, though with some dessert, like crème brûlée or chocolate covered strawberries or fondue. This is a mid-winter beer, for 50º and below only and make sure there are going to be plenty of sweet, sweet after-dinner delights to pair with the already sweet company you’ll hopefully have.
