Default Is there a style you can say you do not like?

As homebrewers, we seem to focus on brewing beers we know whe like and "exploring" the styles we like. This is what I consider the core reason I like brewing.

As I expand my palate, I try to seek out the different styles and sample some of the BJCP commercial examples, and some not on the list for a full scope experience.

I know it is not cool to admit, but I do not think I am falling over myself to seek out Belgians. It may be a matter of my mood when I darnk the many different versions, it may be the conditions with which I tried them, but from a high level, I do not care for them much (with exceptions).

Again, this could be seen as an act of homebrew treason to admit, but I figure there are outhers out there that have styles they just do not seem to like. anyone care to share?

I can't think of a style off the top of my head, but i'm often disappointed with microbrew renditions of belgian style and other beers...american beers always seem far too hoppy.

Pilsners. I don't know why but there are very few that I like.

Hefe-Weissens. They seem so bland to me.

It's okay to not like a style. Unless it's Belgian. That's not okay.

Saying you don't like Belgians is like saying you don't like American beer. The difference between Gouden Carolus GCotE and Hoegaarden is as vast as the difference between Bud Light and Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout. I just find it hard to believe that you can denounce an entire region of beers, given the VAST range of styles there.

What belgian beers have you had? Gouden Carolus Grand Cru of the Emperor? Anything by Fantome? Hanssens Oude Kreik? Karmeliet? Westy St. Sixtus? Rochefort? Saison Dupont?

Just trying to make sure that you're not judging the entirety of Belgium's offerings based on Leffe and Hoegaarden.

Personally...I have yet to find a style that I truly dislike. Even Schlenkerla Rauchbier grew on me. If it's well-made beer, then I'm usually into it.

yeah, i'm with ya evan...that's why i couldn't pick a style.

i'd say i hate pilsners, cuz most the american one's are teh suck...but there are some great german pilsners.

as for belgian and belgian-style beers...here's a few more to think about:

Chimay (obvious), Gulden Draak, St. Bernardus Abt 12, La Fin Du Monde, Maudite

There aren't many lager styles I like enough to want to brew them.

Saves me from investing in THAT setup, anyway.

For now

I don't care for most wheat (at least not the spicy or bananna ones) or beers with spice added...

Barleywines. Just too sweet and overpowering for my tastes.
