Strangest Beer you ever had?

What's the strangest/weirdest beer you've ever had?

For the sake of good taste, I'll leave the 'extreme' beers Larry Bell of Kalamazoo Brewing Company made for the National Hombrewer's Conference in Chicago a few years back out of this. Let's just say there were ingredients in those beers that should NEVER be used in beer!

I had a blueberry ale once. That was nothing like what I expected. Like Robo, I am not fond of fruity beers, but this one was great. There was zero sweetness to it. There was the faintest hint of the flavor of blueberry, but unless I was told that ahead of time I don't think I would have ever guessed that is what it was. The reason I picked it as my strangest beer is that they actually put a small spoonful of blueberries in the glass. That really did seem strange to me, but I liked it a lot.

Bud Light. I usually have such high standards and would never under normal circumstances put such pisswater like a domestic standard brew in my body. I don't know what I was thinking.

I'm with poppinfresh. Bud and Bud lite is horrible, yet it is the most popular beer in America. We have alot of micro brew beers here, but I know I wont like them, with that fruit added to it. I do prefer domestic beer, I hate ale, and heavy beers. My hubby likes Stella Artois, a belgian beer, but to me it smells like a skunk!

The second worst beer I ever had was a Berliner Weiss, in a night club in Berlin. It was a Weissbeer, all wheat floated over a sour rapsberry syrup. Just awful.
But the worst beer ever was at my fiend's house after his daughter was married the day before. They had several cases left of Coors Light...nobody would drink it. That is the most tasteless excuse for beer I have ever encountered.
I had half of it and threw out the rest. I did snag a six pack of it however and used it to rinse out my kegs after I sanitize them, and before refilling with something worth drinking. I called it my keg-wash beers.
