Does Orval count?  I think that's the only one I've tried/found so far and it was pretty darn tasty.

Cantillon, Drie Fontienen, De Cam a top notch.

Boon, Giradin, Hanssens, and Cuvee Rene can be good.  Haven't had the Oud Beersel in a while, and they have changed hands.

Rodenbach is good, as is LaFolie, and Petrus Oud Bruin for the Flanders Reds.  I can't forget Panil.

Goudenband was a good Brown, don't know if that is still in production.

A Berliner Weisse is a good drink on a hot day.

Geene King Strong Suffolk Ale is a classic.

I like a nice pale ale flavored with chili pepper. I don't think I would make 10 gallons of it, but it's a nice change of pace.  8)

I've done two like that with an amber.  First wasn't spicy enough, the current one is too spicy.  Maybe next time...

deProef's Reinart for funk and Duchesse De Bourgogne sour. I would love to get my hands on a Rodenbach but no luck yet. Waiting for pellicle to drop on a Belgian Dark Strong I pitched with WYeast's Orval VSS 3789. It may become my favorite...

So far in my limited range of tastings, I like Avery Sui Generis very well it is a great blend of several cask aged funky beers.

I'm not sure I know what funky beer is?  I just figured they were all styles... and some I like less than others.   :D

I don't consider lambics, Berliner Weisse, or the Flanders red/brown beers "funky".  To my palate, they are refreshing.

I'd guess one person's funky beer is another's ambrosia.

Jolly Pumpkin does some awesome stuff.  I especially like the Bam Biere, which is obviously made in the style of Orval.

Gueuzes/Lambics from Cantillon are always good.  I prefer Rodenbach Grand Cru to the Duchesse for Flanders Reds.
