What beer styles tend to work well with a warm (at least 70F, possibly up to 90) fermentation environment? In other words, what styles will be best to mask or work with the off-flavors produced?

For most people brewing a Saison is a great summer compatible beer to brew. The saison yeast works best at 80F. And the flavor of saison is often citrusy and light. You can brew a saison to a variety of OGs for different levels of enjoyment. You can make a session style saison or a bigger version to pair well with food.

Check out this BJCP link to Saison.

Saison is definitely best for hot climates. Check out Wyeast's Belgian Saison yeast, with ideal fermentation temps of 70 - 95 degrees: wyeastlab.com/rw_yeaststrain_detail.cfm?ID=60 – markskar Jun 4 '10 at 20:40
