Notes / Commercial Description:
The Seesaw series is our gose playground. Designed to capture delight and fun in the form of an easy-drinking and flavorful beer. Each Seesaw has a unique fruit addition to pair with balanced tartness, a touch of salinity, and ABV on the lower side. The nostalgic thrill of warm-weather fun, reimagined in one of our favorite styles. The number of Seesaws dictates once, twice, or three times the fruit added.

Double Seesaw: Raspberry is our first release in the series. Pouring a royal garnet hue of dark maroon, captivating aromas of fresh raspberries swirl to the nose leading to a palate reminiscent of homemade summer mixed berry jam. Refreshingly tart with a balancing salinity, this beer has a medium mouthfeel with a clean finish.

ABV: 4%
MALT: Pale Malt, White Wheat
HOPS: CTZ

L - pours a bloody beet red with stained red head. Everything about this is red! Settles into something even darker and bloodier. Awesome.

S - yep, that's raspberry. Sugar-coated raspberry puree and metallic tang.

T - flavor is actually far more complex than the nose suggests. Getting the initial raspberry pop, but the gose makes an appearance with sea salt and coriander. Tart blackberry and sweet tarts. Very potent for 4%.

F - smooth for a Trillium low ABV gose. Figured this would fall victim to the classic trill airiness and artificial carb feel, and it does somewhat, but is overall quite full and luscious, all things considered.

O - this one certainly packs a punch. Heavy on the tart raspberry and massive saltiness. I can feel my lips burning! Very nice display.

16oz can dated 8/9/18.

Pours dark red with a purple hue and a brilliant purple- pink head. Raspberry jam in the nose with a mild tartness. Medium bodied with a tacky, jammy mouthfeel. Loads of ripe raspberry on the palate with a touch of tartness. Finishes with lingering raspberries and a hint of brackishness.

Great fruit beer weather you're into Goses or not.

This beer LOOKS beautiful, with a rich red color and the pinkest head I've seen outside of a No 2 pencil. Smell is sweet and full of raspberry. Taste is nice, but lets me down a little. That gose saltiness never ends up cutting through the sweetness, and instead rides out on a fairly flat, dull wave. In that sense, this seesaw feels a bit unbalanced. Still very enjoyable, and delicious in a way, just not quite the way I had expected.

Accidentally froze mine to slushy consistency - managed to squeeze a decent amount out of the can anyway, desperate not to let it go to waste, and my disappointment melted to delight as I enjoyed a delicious raspberry slushy. The remaining half in the can melted and somehow retained nearly all of its carbonation. Immensely enjoyable, raspberry right-hook to the face. Pour it on a sno-cone or crushed ice if you have a few cans and want a real treat. Trillium is already ahead of the curve making the beer Icees on the patio but this is delicious at home in any form.

Fluffy bubblegum colored head sits atop a beer, so mimicking beet juice that it would fool Dwight Schrute. Nose is nearly flavorful with sweet raspberry jam, tamed just so slightly with a hint of salt. Taste begins tart, and carries with it a taste best described as “raspberry sweet tart flavored water” which isn’t intended as a slam, rather a testimony to how it can maintain plenty of flavor without becoming cloying or contrived. Finishes just a touch dry with a sweet tartness left on the tongue.
