Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier
Erdinger Weissbier
Maisel's Weisse
Zlatopramen 11
Koff Porter

Did I forget to mention that German weissbier is my favorite type?

Zlatopramen 11 doesn't get much appreciation from ratings that I have read, but one day I had a few while grilling and they were just out of this world. And now they don't sell them here anymore. A Czech coworker of mine brought me a few bottles when he returned from visiting his family a few years back. It would be nice to have some more.

Koff Porter is about the only Finnish beer to ever gain international recognition. Michael Jackson liked it, and he used to visit Finland now to get some down his throat. It's a strong, sturdy beer. Definitely try it if you see one in a store.

I agree, tough call. Five I really enjoy are:

Courage Best Bitter
Rogue Dry Hopped St. Rogue Red Ale
Goose Island Mild Winter
Maredsous Brune/Bruin

These are 5 beers that I just genuinely enjoy.
