New Belgium Whizbang Hoppy Blonde Ale

New Belgium Brewing, Ft. Collins, CO; Asheville, NC

dscf3173

A complex hoppy blonde ale bursting with Mosiac hops and a malty backbone for a full-flavored taste explosion.

5.7% ABV

Clear gold in color with a fruity hoppy nose like a Lagunitas beer.  Subdued but fruity on the palate.  Fruit dies away and replaced by some bitterness.  Disjointed: fruit and bitterness do not mesh at all.  One of the few disappointing New Belgium beers.

Would we have it again?  No
