Wild Ales, geuze, Brett beers. I can't stand them. Everyone else seems to love it. I can't be the only one can I?

I like them but know people that can't stand them. They are definitely different and even if you like like "good beer" it isn't a requirement that you like sour beers because they are just such a different variety.

I didn't use to like them but have started to enjoy them more lately. One of local breweries had their 1 year anniversary party today and they had a cranberry brett wild ale they'd be aging for a year that they tapped, it was amazing.

Maybe I need to give them another shot. Any recommendations? The last couple I tried were Sierra Nevada/Russian River Brux and Cantillon Classic Geuze and I just felt like they tasted like cheap wine.
