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.

Our second Triple Seesaw is generously fruited with peach, plum, blueberry, boysenberry, strawberry, tart cherry, and apricot and pours a dark magenta with moderate haze. An abundance of fruity aromas entice the nose with bursts of muddled berries, raspberry jam, ripe stone fruits, and fresh tangy citrus. Initially, the palate is rich with a melange of dark berries as flavors of ripe strawberry, juicy apricot, and black cherry build mid way through onto the finish. Medium-bodied and semi-dry with a touch of salinity and a delicate, restrained tartness, this Triple Seesaw is both elegant and indulgent.

MALT: Pale Malt, White Wheat

HOPS: CTZ

ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS: Peach, Plum, Blueberry, Boysenberry, Strawberry, Tart Cherry & Apricot

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Trillium Brewing Company, Boston, MA
Canned on 11/06/18
Served in a tulip

The cloudy, dark magenta colored body was capped by a thin, bubbly, light fuschia crown that quickly fell to a frothy collar. A few odd streaks of lacing stuck along the glass.

The aroma was really fruity and bright. Berry notes dominated. Raspberry came through strongest. Strawberry was noticeable too. As the beer sat, blackberry and blueberry notes came forth, as did the overall sweetness. Later, apricot appeared and competed for dominance with the berries.

The flavor was quite fruity as well but definitely more tart and bright than the nose. Again, berry notes dominated. I might guess strawberry followed by raspberry or blackberry. Moderately sour and acidic. Underripe berries or berry seeds came to mind. The tartness and acidity intensified as the beer moved along the palate. Lemon notes and a hint of briny salinity appeared on the finish.

Ultra light and fluffy mouthfeel. The liquid contained a fine yet aggressive effervescence that came across as a touch airy initially. As the liquid sat, the carbonation settled to a more appropriate level and the liquid tuned creamy and slick.

This “Fruit Salad” variation of Triple Seesaw was enjoyable but a step below the other releases. With so many fruits in this one, some were bound to get lost in the fray.

Hazy purple color with short lived purple head. Aroma is really fruity with jam and fruit preserve juices. Taste follows, tart and really fruity, not very acidic, easy drinking with a nice background sweetness. Medium body and carbonation. Really good, fruity, tart and refreshing.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a stemmed harmony glass.

Pours a hazy deep ruby color with a finger of pink head. The head leaves minimal lacing as it settles into a thin ring.

The aroma is straight up peach rings, blueberries, strawberries, and tart cherry. There's plenty of bready malt in the background.

The flavor brings a ton of blueberry jam, boysenberry, and strawberry jam, as well as some wonderfully tart cherries and a hint of peaches. The finish has the faintest hint of salinity.

The feel is medium bodied with good carbonation. Very smooth and creamy, with just enough dry, crispness on the finish. Definitely drinks like a fruit smoothie.

Overall, a great Gose that is nicely balanced and subtly tart. This one is definitely a fruit salad.
