Speciation Artisan Ales Laurentian: Lake Michigan
What the brewers say
"Cooled in a mobile coolship... just a mile away from Lake Michigan, to capture microbes."
What our panel thought
"Beautiful color and clarity. Notes of red apple, pear, vanilla, oak. Lemon verbena and straw carry into the flavor. Medium-acid, mid-palate sweetness, and very dry finish. Low funk with light pineapple and a lingering lactic bite."
What our editors thought
"Pungent phenol-forward nose plus sharp acidity (and bitterness) in flavor offer an intense experience for those experienced with the oeuvre."
