Title says it all: what's beer style you love, but haven't quite made the perfect example of yet? What's holding you back?

I've made about a hundred ESBs and honestly I don't think I've liked one as much as the first extract batch I did, which was hardly what you'd call authentic.

Hefeweizen. Easy to make a good one, very hard to make a great one.

Smakudwn - Have you tried Denny Conn's Amber? Easily the best one I ever made. I made it with Caravienne instead of Carared and it was still extremely awesome.

Relative noob here, but the saison and Irish Red I did were not as good as I had hoped. The red has a thinness to it, and the saison a fusel/metallic quality. I really want to improve on those.

Saison. Every time I make one, I've reformulated the recipe completely because I wasn't happy with the previous version. And of course it doesn't help that the only saison yeast that I really, really like is Dupont.
