I will tell you this, he doesn't mean to do it. I had the same problem with some foods when i was little. If it really does bother you simply give him the choice to eat or don't. Believe me he will just go hungry. It really isn't him trying to test you. If anything he is gagging and throwing up because he is trying to eat it for you.

He might be what is called a super taster. Goggle it and see if it fits. Super tasters in general have more taste buds. It's an old gene left over from being cavemen. It kept us from eating food that wasn't good for us and that typically meant bitter foods. You can buy a test strip to test him for it. Normal taste buds lick this strip and taste nothing. Super tasters do.
