Really bizarre hand here.  My question is, why bet the turn like that, after calling such a small flop bet?

His flop bet is obviously a feeler bet, to see if your hand connected - by just calling you pretty much confirmed it - either that or you flopped the nuts (K-high straight) but even that's very unlikely as you have to be concerned about a flush draw there.  Your call screams "I have A-High, at best an under-pair, and I don't want to be aggressive but I'm not ready to let go either!" - a bit wordy, perhaps that's why you called Cheesy

When the turn comes and you bet out, it really isn't saying much - the bet is less than half the pot and it's not a dangerous card unless you have 44 (which would be very unlikely).

While the river is unlucky for you, it is properly played by villain.

As for why he limp-called preflop - I have no idea, he must have been planning on out-playing you post-flop.

Avoid this in the future by raising the min bet on the flop - he's either flopped a monster (and a quick raise by you will tell you this, for about the same price as you would lose otherwise)...or he's fishing for information and you need to tell him that you won't back down.
