Gulden Draak, La Trappe Quad, or Brother Thelonious

Yes!  Way to get back on track.

Oblivious wheatwine from Griffin Claw Brewing company. It's not something I could drink at on of, but every time I've had it I've been impressed.

Hmm. My inclination is to just buy any beer I admire and support the brewer. Take it as inspiration. Besides, ultimately I wanna brew my own beer not someone else's. ;D

Good call. I don't try to clone beers anyway. I use a beer as inspiration and put my own spin on it.

Sam Adams Boston Lager and Bass Ale just because I've had so much of them over the years; Otter Creek Pale Ale and Stovepipe Porter, because they don't make them any more; and Arrogant Bastard just because it's such a secret

Ok, I'll bite.

Given the recipe and the ability to entirely duplicate the process and ingredients, my pick is Cantillon Gueze.
In this case you would have to ask for the brewery together with the recipe, otherwise the beer wouldn't be the same.

And even if you did have the recipe and the brewery, you would still have to have the skill and the palate to blend the various aged lambics accordingly to end up with the geuze.

There's a joke in here somewhere.......... maybe we should invent a new recipe based on the Schlitz recipe, but add Honey Bunches of Oats cereal to it as well, and then name it Fuggly Clusters of Schlitz!?!?
