I have to agree with the people who have pointed out some of my lest favorite beers:
Leinenkugels Summer Shandy- I think its horrible but the wife loved it.
Sam Adams Cherry Wheat- Wife and I both thought it tastted like cough syrup.

Then the other day I tried Blue Moons Spring seasonal brew, ugh! I love Blue Moon but at first this one was horrible, never really got better and I dont think I actually even managed to finish it, wife even thought it was horrible as well.

Let us know what you end up taking and what the winner/loser is.

Hopefully this isn't off-topic as it wasn't the "worst" craft beer, but I had Full Sail's Bump In the Night yesterday and it was one of the most confusing beers I've had in a while.

Itsbilled as a Cascadian Dark Ale (~ American Black IPA), but it comes across like they brewed another style, didn't like the results, then just dry-hopped to cover it up and threw it on the market as a Black IPA. It's pretty malty and oddly boozy for 6.5 ABV.

Anyone else had this beer?

Samichlaus, had been beer connoisseuring for years and was well familiar with the style, but hated it. Two three sips and down the drain it went. It's been a lot of years now but from what I can vaguely remember it tasted like prune juice with a lot of alcohol mixed in.

Also,
Sam Adams Cherry Wheat
Blue Moon Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale - tasted nothing like a pumpkin! The one's I bought tasted literally like dust, chalky dust!

Wow, I can't believe Samichlaus got thrown under the bus. I love that beer. Incredibly complex and a wonderful winter warmer. There is a prune flavor there but that's just one component of the flavor profile. I get a 6 pack every December.

Yep, but the one I had was awful, absolutely terrible. I know it's rated really highly so I should probably try one again. I got it at a really nice beer distributor in Brooklyn NY, where I used to live. They had between 500-1000 different beers but since most typical Brooklynites in that area probably aren't familiar with good beer theres a damn good chance it was sitting there for a very very long time. But with it's high alcohol content and high OG I'd think it should age fine. One of my other favorites for a long time was Fuller's Vintage. Not sure if they're still making those today though as I haven't seen them in years.

Hands down, Pyramid Apricot Ale, tried it before and after they changed the name to "Audacious" either way it was just crap, people diss Sam Adam's Blackberry Wit, Cranberry Lambic and Cherry Wheat but I can at least finish a bottle of those, not "Audacious". That beer turned me off to fruit beers until I discovered lambics.

Never had Fullers Vintage. Samichlaus actually gets better with age but it is possible that it was not stored properly.

It's funny, my sister worked a summer in Australia, and the Aussies don't drink fosters either. Kinda like most canadians don't drink labatts blue, seriously we don't, it's a far cry from a good pilsner.

Worst beer as of late? Majic hat number 9...... God, it tastes like fermented mushroom juice.... Just plain gross....

I might get slammed here, but the only two beers I couldn't finish were Sam Adams Cherry Wheat and Boulevard Lunar Ale. I don't know what purple should taste like, but I am pretty sure Boulevard Lunar Ale is what it would taste like.

I have an honorable mention to include, don't remember what the exact beer was, but it was made by Gluek. A buddy picked up 4-5 case of it because it was $8/case. I think even when I was drunk I had a hard time putting that stuff down.
