New Belgium Whizbang joins the Colorado/North Carolina powerhouse brewery’s lineup this month.
In case you missed the trend, New Belgium loves seasonals. So much so that new seasonals on average only stick around for 2 to 3 years. It’s not spring yet, but spring seasonals don’t pay attention to temperatures.
Billed as a “sessionable spring alternative”, New Belgium Whizbang is a hoppy blonde ale brewed with a heavy dose of Mosaic hops.
“Whizbang offers a blast of hops, thus the name, yet it’s still crisp and quaffable, It’s hoppy complexity and balanced drinkability makes it a great go-to beer for the late winter and early spring season.” – Bryan Simpson, media relations director for New Belgium.
