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.

For Twice the Daily Serving, we've amplified the mouthfeel, fruit addition, and ABV to achieve our most expressive and luscious fruit beer to date. Brewed with an outlandish amount of raspberries, this beer pours a gorgeous deep ruby red color. Lively aromas of homemade jam, juicy raspberry, and mixed berry fruit leather delight the palate. It finishes full-bodied, slightly sweet, and remarkably drinkable.

Flawless fruit smoothie beer. It really nails it across the board, but what sets this fruit smoothie apart from others is the cleanness and drinkability. Nothing cloying not overly sweet. Dialed in to perfection.

Picked up cans today at the brewery. I live near a farm, and enjoy picking raspberries regularly. Wow! Incredible smelling beer. Amazingly fresh raspberry taste. Reminiscent of being at the farm and sampling a couple of berries right off the bush. And the taste - blew me away. Raspberry smoothie meets beer. One of the most enjoyable — no, *the* most enjoyable — fruited beer I’ve ever had. Blew me away. More, please!

Canned on 09/01/2020. Enjoyed on 09/22/2020. Absolutely ridiculous amount of raspberries in this! If I could give the aroma and taste a 6 out of 5, I would. This pours so thick, it’s like Odwalla but in a good way.

16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours the thickest, deepest blood red ever with a sudsy dark pink head. The head has great retention, leaving some splotchy lacing as it settles into a sheet.

What in the sweet baby Jesus is this aroma? Raspberry everything. Forever. If it's made with raspberries, you can smell it in this beer. No use listing everything out.

You ever had your taste buds molested by a fruit? Wait don't answer that question. "The raspberries taste like raspberries" I say, as I lick Willy Wonka's gross wallpaper. Without getting into detail of all the "notes" in this beer, it tastes like raspberries. It's a smorgasbord of raspberries.

The feel is thick as jam with relatively soft carbonation. "Creamy" doesn't even begin to describe it. It's a fruit smoothie that you have to chew through to get down your gullet.

Overall, I just have one question: What the fuck. How is this a beer, and why do I like it? It's absurd and my review will do no good in describing it. You just need to try it yourself.

16oz. can dated 09/01/20

Pours completely opaque dark purple red magenta with a dense creamy pink foam head with pulpy thick lacing and a remaining ringed cap. Smells like raspberry candy, fresh raspberry jam, dark overripe juicy jammy berries, a touch of earthy grassy hops, and mild caramelized wheaty malts. Tastes like jammy sweet overripe dark raspberries, pulpy garden raspberry jam, lightly tart mixed berries, raspberry candy, mild caramelized wheaty malt, with hints of earthy grassy hops. Feels thick, medium-full bodied, creamy with smooth moderate carbonation. Overall a really great fruited Berliner weisse style ale with raspberries.

16 oz can from Evan, dated 7/15/20. Into Tallgrass snifter.

Holy mackerel, this beer is saturated with color. It's absolutely deep beet red, so thick and full. The 1 finger head is bubble gum pink and recedes gradually to a thick fuzzy ring leaving lace up the sides. WOW.

Aroma - well if you're a raspberry fan it doesn't get any better than this. Just tons of raspberries...and more raspberries. It's so organic and natural, so's as if I just crushed a handful of raspberries in my palms. I can't believe this, it's incredible.

Flavor is earthy and sweet raspberry, highlighted and supplemented secondarily by the Berliner Weiss style. This beer is first and foremost raspberry, so put your goggles on, and dig in. Tons of sweet raspberry with a little zing of yeast and crispness of pilsner malt. Perhaps a touch of lemon or lime zing on the finish.

Feel is creamy and smooth with a little citric bite and a nice little bit of stickiness on the finish. It fits the style extremely well.

Overall, I was not expecting this to be such a slam dunk. Oddly I'm very picky about my sour beers, they have to be clean and properly convey what they set out to do. It's easy for me to dismiss a sour, 'cause I'm just a picky princess. That being said, this one is really something special. This is a raspberry dream. Holy crapola.

Would trade desperately for again.

Drank from a 1 pint can purchased at Trillium Brewing Company, Boston, MA
Served in a tulip

Outstanding appearance. An inch-tall, tight and creamy, light raspberry colored crown topped the cloudy, oxblood hued body. The head dropped to a thin film. A wall of drippy lacing cascaded along the glass and stuck around until the drink’s end.

The aroma was insanely berry forward. Raspberry definitely came through strongest. Super jammy and sweet. Some blackberry was noticeable as well. Hint of tartness. A subtle berry seed-like quality was also detectable. So simple but so amazing.

The flavor profile was also fantastic. Berry notes again dominated. Raspberry came through big time. Super fresh and sweet but also moderately tart. Touch of blackberry and/or boysenberry too. A bit of lemony tartness appeared on the back end and in the finish. Touch of berry seed-like bitterness too.

Nice slick and smooth body. Fuller bodied for the style. The liquid contained a fine, fairly subdued effervescence that fluffed up nicely on the palate.

Twice the Daily Serving: Raspberry is an amazing beer that somehow packs an even bigger raspberry punch than the original version. Trillium are really slaying the fruited Berliner Weisse game. I look forward to seeing what else they have up their sleeve.
