Are there any styles that make you nauseous?

    I don't why this is but I find English Special Bitters make me nauseous. That's not to say I don't like them. I have enjoyed Fullers ESB and Shipyard Old Thumper in the past. I can really enjoy the first few swigs. But by the end of the 12 ounce bottle, I feel completely nauseous. Anybody else have this experience?

    That's very strange and unfortunate. I have never had this problem, nor have I heard of anyone with it. No other styles do this to you and how many have you tried overall?

    Witbiers. There is just something unearthly wrong about them.

    I can truly say that no other styles have had this effect on me. I've tried a bunch (porters, stouts, IPAs, DIPAs, Lagers, Pilsners, HefeWeizens, Belgian Ales, Lambics, etc.).

    Sours give me a mild headache. I'll keep drinking them though.

    Very strange and I wish I could help more. My only guess would be certain types of English yeast. Have you tried many English IPA's, Milds, Porters, or Old Ales?

    I can't stomach the taste of Belgian beers and wheat beers (the latter to a lesser degree). The wheaty/yeasty flavors of them taste like a rotten sandwich to me. I had Aventinus' Weizen-Eisbock and I gagged after every sip, couldn't finish it.

    Browns don't make me nauseous but there is absolutely nothing appealing to me about them. Lagers give me horrific heartburn.

    No, but there are threads that do.

    My experience of English beers consists mostly of Samuel Smith. I love Samuel Smith beers and have never had a problem with them.

    Stouts, Porters, and Trappist's. Everything from Chimay, to Guiness Stout...disgusting.

    Nut browns. Wouldn't go so far as to say they make me nauseated but I really have no desire to drink another one.

    Anything that has "mint" on the label.

    Or "banana."

    Those are two flavors I can't take in much food.

    Most dubbels (or anything "raisin-y" --peraps from brettynomyces -- remind me of Robatussin cough syrup)

    Anything with very heavy caramel/malt makes me feel a little sick after finishing it (e.g. doppelbocks). Similar to the OP, I can enjoy it while its going down, but once I finish it I feel ill.

    More generally, I think I have something about alcohol and sweetness. I can't handle anything that's too sweet.

    Super dank, super piney IPAs. Not nauseous, and it's probably just a mental thing, but they somehow trigger my allergies and cause pressure to build up behind my eyes.

    Flanders Red Ales, sadly. There are some very respectable beers in this style, but I just can't enjoy them.

    Weiss beers (those German Weiss yeast banana and clove flavors).. (shudders). There are certain breweries that upset my stomach, cause my nose to run an eyes to redden. Haven't figured out a common ingredient though. The top brewery that pops into my mind that this happens with is Gordon Biersch.

    Old Style makes me nauseous. No scientific explanation and I don't think they even taste that bad. Either way, I'm not buying it again.

    Put a ton of anise in your beer and my gag reflex will be tested to its max.

    Sours make me somewhat acrid and gassy, thus why I haven't ticked many. It's a shame because I enjoyed the actual flavors.

    I feel bad for you, about the IPAs. That does my empty stomach good.
