Speciation Artisan Ales The Laurentian Series: Cuvée de Grand Lacs

What the brewers say

Blended from all five spontaneous batches on June 18, 2019, and bottle-conditioned for seven months.

What our panel thought

Somewhat muted aroma with stone fruit, mango, guava, lemon, and vinegar. One-dimensional, acetic flavor: mild tropical fruit, medium acidity, as chalky mineral lingers. Fairly puckering. Strong fruit character is nice. Off-putting acetic notes.

What our editors thought

Lemon-caramel on the nose with gentle Bretty funk—deft in approach, yet satisfying. The sip is almost weightless, pushing forward sparkling mineral, hay, lemon, and funk. Smartly blended, vivacious, spirited.
