Not a kit recommendation, but I will refer you to this very..very reliable thread:

In Primary:
Amarillo Pale Ale
A Stout I brewed for a guy as a lesson

In Bottles:
Jamil's Belgian Tripel
Centennial Pale Ale

On Draft:
Imperial Red Ale

I would try the Witbier kit. I've never made their recipe and on their website it just says "Spice Pack". Some coriander and orange peel is usually the norm.
Draft 1:
Draft 2:
Draft 3: Belgian Dubbel

Primary 1: German Hefe
Primary 2:

As Wayne will tell you, you want to use a neutral yeast and not a belgian wit yeast so that the citrus flavor will come though. I have a blue moon-ish beer fermenting right now and cant wait to try it out

wayne recommended to me to use S-05.. I have made several batches and it may not be 100% blue moon, it is damned good beer. In fact I have ben asked to make it for a wedding reception. I have 2 batches ready to keg and one to make.
