My absolute favorite so far was Rodenbach Grand Cru. Unfortunately my state has a dearth of sour beers. When I visit CA or other states I'm on the lookout (I still need to make a trip to MA - I think Cantillon can be found there).

Liefmans Goudenband was probably the best Oud Bruin I had.

Wild ales: Brux! It's a Sierra Nevada & Russian River collaboration and it's amazing. Comes off like a super dry saison and tastes like a 4%ABV beer (it's 8.3%).

Lambics I've had, but I don't think I can recommend any particular one yet. I wouldn't stay away from funk, though.... that's the whole point!

Tell me about Grand Cru. Just thirty minutes ago I was in a grocery store near work and noticed Grand Cru for the first time.

It's essentially Rodenbach, but blended with a higher percentage of their aged beer. It's 66% vs the 25% that's in their standard beer. It's more tart, more assertive. I like it, but if you were turned off by Duchesse, you might not be into it. They are somewhat similar, although I'm sure someone will chime in to disagree!
