I do like putting together some dirty ho's when hosting brunch. That's Hoegaarten and raspberry lambic . But wheat beers generally tend to be too sweet for my palate anyway.

I don't care for many wheat beers either. Most are too sweet for me also. The one exception I can think of is Three Floyds Gumballhead. Supposedly that's a wheat beer. It's so over hopped you would never know it. For me it's kind of like eggs. Eggs are 1 of just a few foods I have never liked my whole life (I am by no means a picky eater and will generally shove any kind of food in my mouth). I will eat an omelette however with enough ingredients that mask the egg content. Gumballhead is the same way. The large amount of hops completely overpowers the sweet and the wheat.
On topic I had Surly Abrasive and Pliny tonight. Surly gets the nod for better beer for my palate tonight.
Dirty ho night at Aaron's sounds like a good time.
Count me among the wheat beer non fans. I have never liked any wheat beer I've ever tried. It has a very off putting flavor to me.
Trying out Spiteful Brewing's Bitter Biker DIPA. Really impressed by this new brewery. I definitely recommend it for all you other hopheads in the Chicago area.
I like wheat beers, especially the Hacker-Pschorr version.
A couple of different brews at the the corner bar with a few buddies. The Allagash Currieux continues to dazzle my taste buds.

A Stone Ruination. It's nice to get out of Utah and have a wider selection of beer.
