Which Belgian beers would you recommend for a beginner?
Check out somme american interpretations of belgian styles. Hill farmstead has some amazing brews out. Funkwerks does great work as well. Deciet, their new trippel, is as good as that style gets. Boulevard has long strange trippel, sixth glass, and their nommo dubbel that are all wonderfule. Their dark truth stout is fermented with belgian yeasts, making it taste more like a quad than a. Stout. Avery has the reverend, a great american version of a quad. I could go on for days, but at the end of the day, may e these beers just don't do it for you, and that's okay. Life is too short to drink beer you don't enjoy.
Who says you have to enjoy them?
Not everyone is gonna like everything.
First of all, I recommend St. Bernardus beers. Their Abt 12 got me into loving belgians and beer for that matter. (The rest of their line up is great as well.) Next brewery I suggest is Unibroue. Both cheaper and better than most other belgian-style breweries.
What beer styles do you like now? Might be easier to find an analogous Belgian style to start you off.
Don't force yourself into liking them.. But keep an open mind. If you like hops, then maybe try some Belgian Style IPAs and work from there.
