Never been a fan of fruity/flowery/yeasty/cloudy beers, which covers a lot of territory: wheat, sour, saison/farmhouse. The sour thing is a little weird, because in general I adore sour flavors.

Side note on America's rager for Belgian beers: I spent a summer in Belgium, and thank god I was in Antwerp where I could always find een Bolleke de Koninck. They call it (not very seriously) an APA — Antwaarpse Pale Ale. The flowery Belgian froof most people coo over... bleh. My two other Belgian go-tos were Leffe Brune (yum) and Palm Speciale.

Sours and saisons seem to be the current fad, just based on the volume and variety at this year's Taste. I tried several, since they make a good palate cleanse. They're OK, but I'm not enthused about them.
