A lot of things are also context specific. I didn’t like beer at all until I had one on a hot day in Puerto Vallarta, age 15.
I wouldn’t want a pumpkin beer all the time, but it can be done right and those spices would certainly be complementary to some kinds of food - various fall fare like turkey with stuffing, cranberries, squash, etc. Also, and even moreso, Indian food.
On the wheat beer front, most North American wheat beer I’ve had is either a french or belgian style that I like less, or a North American interpretation of German wheat which misses the mark, or, worst of all, German Wheat that has seen better days (i.e. full of dead yeast). A Hefeweizen on draft in Munich is the best beer ever made.
