Year of New Beer: Blood Orange Margarita Gose, TrimTab Brewing Co (Birmingham)

Written By: Dion on 03/27/2020

First things first...yes, the label does appear to "glow." Tart nose of citrus peel, salt, and wheat. Nothing overpowering, but nothing that really draws you in. Blood orange gets a bit more assertive on the tongue, combining with a light salinity to produce a margarita-esque feel. Moderately tart over a light wheat base. This is OK, but it doesn't hold a candle to the pomegranate margarita sour that Mirror Twin has available right now in Lexington. Just another reason I believe the beer scene in Lex could be one of the best kept secrets in the country.
