Boulevard has a summer witbier called Zon, which is in the style of Belgian white beers and it is pretty good in the heat so far this summer. I really enjoy Boulder Beer Company's "Hazed and Infused" dry-hopped IPA style in the summer as well. Also, it is always tough to beat New Belgium's Sunshine wheat.
I like most of the styles Unibroue brews, but I can't get into any of their beers. I think it's the yeast they use. I know it's a proprietary house strain & it seems to give all of their beers a certain characteristic that I just don't care for. I've heard other people say the same thing, so I know I'm not just imagining things. :p
And Allagash is fantastic. Their wit is one of the few I really like.
I'm insanely indecisive and a big beer geek, so I just couldn't pick an absolute favorite. As far as best beers I've ever had, here's my short list:
Heavy Seas Loose Cannon
Dogfish Head 90 Min
Gonzo Imperial Porter
Thirsty Dog Siberian Night
Hoppin' Frog BORIS The Crusher
Duchesse De Bourgogne
Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout
Goose Island Sofie
Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Sumpin'
Ommegang Abby Ale
Ommegang Rare Vos
Troeg's Nugget Nectar
Just had the Piraat for the first time a few days ago - utterly amazing. If I had to pick one for now, I'd say that's my current favorite.
