Al Fakher is a VERY nice strawberry. I mix it with AF vanilla 60S-40V. DELICIOUS!

I had Tangiers Lucid Strawberry and it was terrible!
Al Fakher Strawberry tastes like coconut mixed with a tiny bit of strawberry.
Nakhla Strawberry is no good either.

There are NOT many good strawberries out there.

BUT, if I was going to gamble on one, I would try Al Waha or Starbuzz

Any strawberry is a true gamble, all are worth a go at least once

I've smelled Al Waha years ago and it smelled GREAT! but wasn't a great smoke. BUT I think that was due to being very old! I would personally give it another chance and it is cheap!

OHHHH I just thought of another one! Ayam Zaman makes a good strawberry!

There was a brand called Crystal that was not too bad, but they aren't around anymore.

Af strawberry isn't bad, its the only one i've tried though.

there's a topic to this thread. And it has nothing to do w/the 2 of you bickering. Give it a rest!
Anyway, AF ''golden'' strawberry is easily he best I've had. I would recommend it.

I've heard mixed things about Nakhla Strawberry. I heard that it has a very natural strawberry flavor and even has that little sour aftertaste to it that strawberries have. But I have also heard that it's just no good, like Sambooka said.

I tried Pharao Strawberry and Kiwi Strawberry and they were both extremely sweet and artificial. If you're into that taste, then I would recommend that but if you want something that tastes like real strawberries, stay away from Pharaoh.

I agree AF strawberry is nice although it does have a buttery taste to it. I smoked it by myself once and made me a little sick feeling but other than that it was nice.

Apparently, Ayam Zaman makes an excellent strawberry, if you can get your hands on it.

Personally, I've only tried AF Golden Strawberry. It's very good, like a very sweet strawberry jam. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. It mixes superbly with vanilla and chocolate. You could go crazy and mix it with a raspberry and a blueberry to create a homemade triple-berry flavor. The possibilities are endless!!

Serbetli Strawberry is actually very good, it's not that aritfical sweet taste to it, it's a bit closer to the real thing.
Though, Serbetli is a tad hard to come by I quess.

Yeah i think SB makes a strawberry Margarita and Strawberry Daiquiri.. Margarita.. according to my friend "is the bomb"... so i would try that one lol. And yes... there is an overwhelming amount of bad strawberries out there.. My friend won't buy ANY kind of watermelon because of the miserable experience we had with one particular kind.

I think strawberry is one of those flavors which are just hard to replicate in a hookah tobacco. Fumari strawberry was pretty nice but nothing spectacular.

Strawberry and apple are very hard to replicate accurately. There are a few that I consider good but none that I consider great.

HH is tasty but very... strawberry bubblegum.
AF golden is damn nice but tastes like an artificial strawberry jelly.
Tangiers is ok. It's the most realistic strawberry I have found but it's way too light and easily over powered by the tobacco or molasses in noir. It's ok in lucid.
Fusion Strawberry Daiquiri is tasty and pretty good but very artificial.

These are the top of the barrel in my opinion and experiences so far. I have some SB coming my way that includes one of their strawberry flavors. But as of yet I have never found a strawberry I considered to be "great".

It's sad really.
