Default AF Cola - nasty! Will acclimating help?

So I've been wanting to try AF Cola for a while. I bought a 50g sample from a local shop (for a whopping $5, ouch).

So I took it straight home and loaded it in my KM.

Smell wasn't great and the taste was awful. The taste was very very sour. The taste was pungent enough that I felt like coughing after every draw (and I never cough). It was not harsh like shisha gets when there is too much heat, it was just a really nasty sour with a hint of cola taste. I definitely would not have even recognized this to be cola flavor if I did a blind taste test.

Production date was May 2007.

I'm going to try to air it out a bit to see if acclimating helps. Has anyone else had this problem with AF Cola?

No, sounds like a bad batch.

The flavor should be like cola with no tart taste to it.

I had the same nasty problem with a 50g of AF cola that you have...try the SB classic cola...100x better IMO

rofl!!! I could use vinegar in the base too!


Yeah it is tart.

I'm going to air it out for several hours and see if that helps. I'll report back if it helps.

Edit: I aired it out and it does seem to have a better smell to it.

(Haha, MrBungle you're fucking awesome) You should try ordering some from AF's official site. I ordered the same flavor from there and it's just fine, much better than the AF I've been buying from the local shop.
