It was new for me!Ruby color with medium white head. Aroma of winey fruit. Taste is balanced tart , winey, sweet an sour. Pleasant acidic finish

Pours a mineral copper, like a filled pit mine. Appropriate khaki head, looks inviting.

Smells of cherry, grape, red wine vinegar.

Slightly tart at the corners of the mouth, unripe grapes, plum, yeast, tart cherry, balsamic vinegar.

Carbonation is lively but not overpowering, compliments a solid body. Smooth.

Very clean, lightly tart and acidic. Wine-like. Solid and easy drinking for the style.

I'm really crazy about the Grand Cru so thought to give the Red classic a try. Some barnyard/earthy scents. Also a touch of sulfur scents. Flavor is tart yet malty. Kinda simple and not much complexity. Not the most flavorful of the Flanders Red style but still an ok option for reasonable price. Not really interested in buying again.
