I no longer really feel like drinking fruit beers, especially fruit wheats. Two summers ago I had a bunch of samplers and by the end of July or so I was pretty done with raspberry-, pomegranate-, etc, wheats. The irony, then, that my fruit beer got the best score of the ones I entered into a competition

Besides that I'm not sure how I feel about American barleywines but English ones may be my favorite style. I'm scared to brew one because I don't want to mess it up.

I'll drink (2) HOT 30pks of mixed Coors, Miller, Bud before I'll ever attempt to drink another Lindemans Geuze Cuvee Renee'.

I even tried sugaring it as is suggested the locals do, but blech!

And I like sours.

I mostly with David on this. It is the rare fruit beer that I like, except for wits to a degree and this one Blueberry Oatmeal Stout I had that was very good.

And for big beers I often love the first sips or even full bottle but I almost never go back for a second. I have a bunch of delicious big beer batches that I only sample now and then.

I hate to use a hackneyed word but I like session beers that have high drinkability. Like Randy Mosher, I feel that beers are best judged on the third pint, not the first sips.

American Light Lager and CAP - I just find them uninteresting. I also abhor fruit beers.

Sam Adams Cranberry Lambic made me want to punch myself in the face for drinking it.

Since I started homebrewing, I've not cared for wheats either. I remember liking Oberon a few years back, but just had some last week, and I don't htink I'll be getting another. about 8 yrs ago I was on location in Milwaukee and the bar accross the street has Franziskaner (sp?) on tap. I thought that was awesome.

I'm not a big fan of "scottish" brews or other overly sweet beers.
I like them bitter.

Love 'em all.... except brown ale and fruit beers. I know... it's weird. I like everything from ordinary bitters to big belgian goldens... Sours? (sorry... sowahz)... the more sowah the betta...

for some reason I just don't like browns. Fruit beers never did it for me eitehr and I said "veggie" because I don't like pumpkin or chili beers at all (those are veggies right?)

It's the dislike of browns I've never been able to figure out though. just something about them.

In general I don't like sour beers although I've had a couple that weren't bad. Wouldn't buy them though. I like German hefes and Belgian wits, but American wheats are just too bland for my taste.

Fruit beers are generally something I dislike unless the fruit is understated. I'm fine with something like the citrusy note of witbier.
