New Belgium Brewing’s new spring seasonal Whizbang, is a hoppy blonde ale bursting with Mosaic hops riding atop a malty backbone. The result is a full-flavored taste explosion. The beer, which is available now through March in 12 oz. bottles and on draft, is a sessionable spring alternative. The light and refreshing ale has a soft malt base, with vibrant notes of mango, lemon, blueberry, and pine thanks to Mosaic, UK Admiral, and Centennial dry-hopping.
 
“Whizbang offers a blast of hops, thus the name, yet it’s still crisp and quaffable,” said Bryan Simpson, media relations director for New Belgium. “It’s hoppy complexity and balanced drinkability makes it a great go-to beer for the late winter and early spring season.”
