Default Worst smoke ever

I picked up some AF grape today,I have heard very good things so i figured i'd give it a try. When i opened it it smelled sort've odd, like heinz if you will. called up John to ask him what to do, said air it out and try to smoke it. I did, and it tasted like I was smoking Ketchup. Don't get me wrong, If Al fakher comes out with Hot dog flavored shisha this would compliment it perfectly, but alone = yucky!!!!

Af you've lost a few cool points with me, even if your pipe flavor is amazing =(

I tried their golden grape, it was good don't get me wrong, but Romman's is tastier. Tastes just like welch's grape juice.

I have a golden grape and a normal..
Strange cus I think the normal tastes good and smokes good.. but the golden doesnt taste as good..
Its probably just my setup.. Ive gotten much new stuff lately so I havent had time to find good setups yet!

Nah I hear many that agree with you reality, their regular grape is a white grape, while their golden is purple.

My af grape had the ketchup smell when I first got it. I aired it out for several hours (stirring often in a very shallow container).

The ketchup smell and taste are completely gone now and it tastes wonderful! I hope you have the same luck that I had.

Not necessarily Nima, I have both and personally I choose regular grape over golden. It simply tastes better in my opinion. Liszt it sounds like you got a bad batch bro, acclimate it and the smell should be gone and it should taste good. Use the tip Wharbone suggested and you should be fine. If that doesn't work, better luck next time I guess

I left mine to air out for hours at a time over a three day period with constant stirring. It did not taste like ketchup at all!

I haven't had any problems with it yet, at least not from the 50g packs I get downtown. Doesn't it help to order fresh from the official AF site? Or is there still that chance of getting the ketchup smell/taste anyway?

I have mixed experience with AF Grape. Overall, its a flavor I am not willing to buy again unless I know for certain thier production problem is solved.

It did not completely go away, but I was able to actually smoke it, so I did.

i perfer the normal over golden, but have given up temp on getting good af grape until they change things. so far my golden is the new cut, but tastes fine (although different than normal grape).

try other brands of grape - sahara and crystal is good, nakhla is good too.

Im somewhat dissapointed by this GOLDEN Af grape.. I love AF for their DA and their lovely quailty, not as much stems, very juicy shisha, good smelling and tasting.. So I go weitht he golden edition for the first time, thinking it would taste so good that Id simply pass out..
But no.. Nothing like that... It was 'ok' u know.. I really escept more of this eskanderian apple from the golden line Ive just ordered.. We'll see.. If it doesnt make me smile then I'd probably dump AF for like.. nakhla or SB or fusion ...

Last night I got a 50g of AF grape, still smelled like barf, let it sit out for a while and it smoked just like the old batch(old cut shisha) i had

AF Golden Grape is good for mixes, more mellow of a flavor imo.
