    Ritterguts is my favorite gose by far. Victory Kirsch Gose and Westbrook are also pretty good.

    I did really enjoy Victory Kirsch as well.

    Older Pro was brewery only if I'm not mistaken. There were a couple different versions that had fruit added to them and were fantastic.

    I don't have five but a couple I really like and seek out regularly; Anderson Valley's Blood Orange Gose is really good and seems to be easy to find. Not sure if you get Grimm in your area, but their Super Going is one of my favorite Goses.

    I've got another vote for Grimm, but it was Super Spruce that blew me away.

    For the OP in Alabama the top 5 listed are widely distributed. I liked them all except I wasn't too fond of Otra Vez.

    For the Maryland guys...Union's Old Pro I enjoyed and had the most sour punch of any Gose's I've had to date.
    Victory's Kirsch Gose I found delicious but at $10-$12 a 4 pack it wasn't exactly a sessionable price for a sessionable brew. Can't exactly replace a bucket of Corona's with that for a day at the beach or I'd go broke.
    Brewer's Alley Old Man Ransom Ale was tasty and well done.
    Devil's Backbone has a Cranberry Gose in cans out now. I enjoy the flavor, but man the smell is the worst of any I've had. Rotten sulfur eggs big time noticed in that one.

    Westbrook and Lost Nation are 2 of my favorites as well but hard to get in MD. The Wind by Lost Nation is phenominal.

    I always try to have an Anderson Valley Gose in the fridge. I liked Union Old Pro Gose the most, I think, but it is limited distribution.

    As a slight tangent, if you like Gose, have you tried any Berliner Weiss options? Both styles for me are perfect session beers (especially in summertime).

    Omnipollo Bianca Mango Lassi was quite good. However, it was a second reminder to me that I should avoid beers with lactose.

    Another recommendation for the non-traditional Geyser Gose.

    Although I don't live where I can call Destihl's Wild Sour Series beers a regular of mine... I loved the Here Gose Nothin' and the same "gose" for The Kimmie, The Yink & The Holy Gose Ale by Anderson Valley Brewing Co. The seasonal release from Boulevard called Hibiscus Gose is great as well as the Brombeere Blackberry Gose from Odell. I am a fan of the very tart & very sour side of the spectrum though... Otra Vez did not impress me, but I will be revisiting it again sometime soon with an aged for 5 months bottle and a fresh tap pour. Those would be my recommendations. Cheers! :wink:

    It's unconventional to style, but my top Gose is Perennial's Suburban Beverage. Rounding out the top five (in no real order):
    - Union Old Pro
    - Off Color Troublesome
    - Anderson Valley KYHG
    - Most recently, SN Otra Vez

    Agree with most of the previous posts, Super Spruce, Westbrook, Gose Gone Wild, and AV blood orange. I've only had it once so far, but the new one by Anderson Valley, Briney Melon is superb. It's by far my favorite of the 3 that they make.

    I know it's too local and too small, but any gose from Junkyard Brewery out of Moorhead, Mn is insanely good.

    Westbrook Gose is sublime. A couple of the variants have been excellent as well, but the regular WB Gose is the standard of the style for me.

    I also think Anderson Valley Blood Orange Gose is very good and is usually affordable and readily available.

    stickboy1125 Initiate (0) Jan 28, 2012 Virginia

    I've enjoyed Union Old Pro, Anderson Valley and Westbrook. Not a fan of Sixpoint Jammer or Otra Vez, although probably give Otra another shot this summer since it's more affordable than the others but won't bother with Sixpoint again.

    Westbrook for sure, but Otra Vez will be in my fridge all summer long.

    My first gose was Anderson Valley Blood Orange, but I think I like Otra Vez better. Sure, it may not be as salty and sour, but the meeting of grapefruit and gose is something magical. The cactus might have added something but I couldn't tell.

    Urk1127 Meyvn (1,317) Jul 2, 2014 New Jersey

    Sixpoint Jammer. My first. And only gose for me lol

    It wasn't super sour if at all acidic. The salinity was on point. And i loved the massive coriander on the light body of that beer. Reminded me of the ocean and i used to work on and currently live on an island so the ocean is important to me. Jammer gives me this certain comfort.

    Anderson Valley's The Kimmie, The Yink & The Holy Gose and the various Gose's they've spun off from that one are all pretty top notch as far as an American brewery tackling that style. For actual German ones, I'd say that Döllnitzer Ritterguts Gose and Leipziger Gose are certainly both standard bearers for the style.

    Another notch on the wall for Grimm's Super Spruce. Insanely good and they just had a bottling run in January. Beautiful beer.
