Saw this article in the NY Times about pastry beers. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/14/dining/drinks/sweet-beer-pastry.html It talks about the growth in dessert beers and how brewers are making them to attract the non-hardcore beer drinkers. The sweeter the beers are the better they sell, at least that is what they say. Brewers mimic things like Hostess fruit pies, coffee cake, blueberry muffins, key lime pie, etc. At what point do you think that a beer detracts so much from the core beer flavors that it no longer resembles a beer and is that a good thing or a turnoff? For me when beers taste more like a soda it really does not appeal to me as when I want a beer I am expecting a certain characteristic that makes beer what it is for a particular style. Any other flavors should just enhance and not dominate the core beer flavors, but that is just my preference so wanted to hear other views on it.
