Okay, so, unfortunately I haven't had a chance to try a lot of beers...yet. I'm not a big IPA fan from my limited experience. My recent brews have been mainly wheat beers and am looking to expand. I've come across a few Belgian Blonde Ales on here that sounded great, especially with some strawberry.

Open to ideas. Ease of brewing and cost is a big factor. All grain also works for me. So, simple and delicious summer recipes are needed.

I am a huge fan of Belgo Blondes, simple, clean, and lots of potential variety via different yeasts. Then work into Belgian 8s, Trippels, ...
