3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
All of Societe’s hoppy brews are incredibly light in color. Apprentice is no different, and it’s odd to taste a beer so hoppy that looks like a pilsner. Orange peel and papaya mix in the fruity, tropical nose. The flavor adds mango, pink fruits and juicyfruit. Snappy, sharp, biting bitterness. There’s very little malt to back it all up, just some white crackers and a hint of honey. That’s one way to make the hops stand out, I suppose: add hardly any malt at all. I’m not complaining.

Pairs well with meatloaf. Gold with so much steady carbonation it looks like a white tornado in the glass. Maintains a thick white foam and strong lace. Very nice. Smooth. Steady hop note.
