I do like fruit beers if they are not overly sweet (for a fruit beer) and also relatively natural tasting. Some fruit beers ARE very sweet, with added sugar, and some DO taste a little simplistic like jam or candy.
Impossible to generalize, but the "Chapeau" stuff aren't the sort of Belgian beer I like, and I do like some weird beers from La Belge.

I drank a Smirnoff hard lemonade that was given free at an event - it was this industrial lemon sugar pop with a brutal alcohol edge that just felt awful. A punishing quaff.
