Sam Adams Cherry Wheat. It tastes like someone took a decent beer and added cherry flavored cough syrup to it.

Yeah, it's pretty terrible. Their Coastal Wheat this summer did the same thing but with lemon. It had this scented bathroom cleaner like aftertaste.

Most cherry beers are really just beer with flavoring added, which is terrible. If you want to make a good cherry beer, cherries have to be used in the fermentation process(i.e. New Glarus Belgian Red). Actually this goes for just about anything you want to put in beer, beer shouldn't be made with flavorings.

Yeah, fuck flavor! Down with flavor!

...you do realize that hops, malts and even yeasts are flavoring agents, yes?

Yeah, I guess I meant artificial flavors like cherry syrups...... my bad.

We had a keg of Etna Brewing Company's Blackberry Blonde with is a light wheat bear flavored with blackberry syrup. It's pretty good. I am not much for beer, but I liked it, and several beer aficionados were present and also liked it.

Cherry syrup is sugar+water+cherries, which is boiled until the liquid is reduced and the solids are strained off. You can probably do that without the sugar. They could also be using cherry extract, which is made by soaking cherries in alcohol. Sam Adams states on their website that cherries are added during the brewing process in this case. So basically, the cherries are boiled in sugary liquid and the solids are strained off.

My votes for worst beers go to ... in no particular order

1. Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, I have to agree it tastes like cough syrup.
2. Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier , Had this one a few weeks ago at German Bierfest Atlanta. It's a smoked beer. It literally tastes like liquid beef jerky mixed with extra salt and rubbing alcohol.
3. Magic Hat Celebration(I think this is the right name) It was The July 4th brew from 2009. It made me and a few friends sick.

I know it's not necessarily a "bad" beer, but there is something about the taste of "Sweaty Betty" by Boulder Beer Co that I just cannot stomach. I absolutely love almost every other beer they make, especially "Mojo" and "Mojo Risin," but that one, for some reason, is completely undrinkable for me.

I'll grant you that it's an acquired taste, commonly called bacon-beer, but after living in Bamberg, Germany (the home of the Aecht Schlenkerla brewery) it's now something I seek out.

Lucky for me, there's a local German deli that carries it!

Worst beer I've ever had?

Kingfisher. You have to taste it to believe how awful it is.
Summer is miles and miles away, and no one would ask me to stay.
And I, should contemplate this change... to ease the pain.
And I, should step out of the rain... turn away.

I have a fond memory of college when we were so broke even the $2.99 12 pack of pabst (this was way back before Pabst had become cool to drink, so even that was scraping the bottom) was beyond our means.
The 32nd street market across from our apartment had 99 cent 40s of Laser malt liquor which is I know not technically beer but hey its the same to me. It tasted like death and was a worst case scenario as you instantly got a hangover at the same time you got your drunk.

I have tried most of the other beers listed here and been ok with a lot of them. Like Sam Adams Cherry Wheat is quite drinkable for me, but Laser, the thought of it makes my stomach hurt.

The lambic fruit beers are crimes against nature. I've had a non fruit tainted lambic before, and found it quite pleasant. If I wanted fruit in my drink, I'd get a fruit juice.
Similarly for the honey beers - I still shudder at the thought of Church End's Pooh beer (supposedly punning, but unintentionally accurate), 10 years since I had about 2 sips.
And woe betide letting an "Extra cold" of anything get much above freezing... they become runaway winners at that point.

Honey beers can be quite nice.

I must say, I haven't had Sam Adams' cherry wheat beer in awhile but I liked it.

For me, any IPA. Can't deal with the stuff.

Worst beer that I, in my snobby CAMRA way, consider actual beer, I've ever encountered? Camerons Roaring Lion which tasted of catpiss. If I'm eating spicy food like a good phall or anything Mexican then I'm usually fine with crappy macro lagers.

I mean. Yes its bad, but when they say "best" they mean like how the diner behind me has a sign that says "Best coffee in the world". No one expects the cheapest ass Miller product to actually be the best.
