Notes: Daily Serving was born out of our desire to express intense, saturated fruit character in beer form. After thoughtful experimentation with Permutation 6.47 and 6.51, we found that a base recipe similar to the German Berliner Weisse style, with its delicate, yet fluffy mouthfeel and even-keeled acidity is the perfect foundation for robust fruit additions.

The third addition to the Daily Serving family was brewed with a trio of dark berries. Pouring a deep pink with a heavy, soft haze, an abundance of late summer farmstead berry aromas swirl from the glass. Fresh blackberry, black currant, and boysenberry jam notes intermingle on the palate. Gently sweet and incredibly full-bodied with a balancing tart character, Daily Serving: Black Currant, Blackberry, and Boysenberry finishes soft and refreshing.

MALT: American 2-row Barley, Flaked Wheat, White Wheat, Acidulated Malt

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Trillium Brewing Company, Boston, MA
Served in a Rastal Harmony stemless beer glass

The beer poured a fairly thick and completely opaque, deep blackberry color. A bubbly, finger-tall, bright pink crown topped the liquid, but it quickly fizzled away. There was no lacing whatsoever.

The aroma was surprisingly subtle. Somewhat fruity and tart. Blackberry was noticeable. Perhaps some blueberry too. I did not pick out the black currant and boysenberry however. As the beer warmed, more fruity sweetness came forth.

The flavor profile was similar to the nose but definitely punchier. Fruity notes dominated. Black currant was most apparent. Blackberry was noticeable as well. Some lemony tartness came through in the center. More tartness and acidity on the back end and the finish. Nice lingering sweet/tart interplay after the swallow. Hint of earthy hop bitterness.

Fuller bodied mouthfeel. Somewhat viscous and pulpy. The beer contained a finely beaded, medium effervescence that turned creamy, slick and smooth on the palate.

Trillium’s Daily Serving Raspberry was outstanding, but subsequent releases have been less impressive. Moving forward, perhaps they should focus on doing more single fruited offerings.

Can from the Fort Port brewery in Boston, purchased on the weekend of EBF 2020. Pours an opaque crimson with a vibrant pinkish-red head that lingers and decent lacing, smell is a blast of sweet Frutti di Bosco juice, Hawaiian punch Gatorade, rich berry jam, berry smoothie, taste is surprising mild with rich jammy blackberry, a pleasant low volume fruity tartness that transitions to a berry hard candy sweetness that lingers, this beer is surprising robust with nice carbonation. A straight berry juice that is stupidly beautiful, very fruity on the nose and subtle on the palate. Jam!

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

Pours an opaque dark magenta color with a finger of bright pink head. The head leaves a ring of lacing before settling into a thin sheet.

The aroma brings notes of wheat bread, blackberry jam, and cherry pop tarts.

The flavor brings notes of raspberries, grape juice, fresh boysenberries, and blackberry yogurt. There's some wheat bread with just a hint of blueberry jam on the finish. This beer is stupid.

The feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very creamy and smooth. Finishes relatively dry.

Overall, a very good beer that's absurdly fruity and honestly tastes more like a smoothie than a beer. Very drinkable and subtly refreshing.

Opaque dark purple red rose color with a fluffy pink foam head. Smells like tart mixed berries, dark berry jam, fresh black currants, raspberry, blackberry and boysenberries. Tastes like tart jammy berries, dark berry smoothie, raspberry, fresh blackberry, boysenberries, black currants with mild acidity, almost yogurty, fruit forward, super fruits, with a hint of wheat malt in the background. Medium fuller bodied with smooth carbonation. Overall a real nice fruity Berliner Weisse style ale.
