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.

Bought this on clearance for $1. Thinking it is pretty old. Poured dark like a Coke. Aroma is slightly boozy with some apple fruitiness. Mild flavor. It has a sharp bite on the tip of the tongue, followed by some apple flavors. Actually taste pretty good. Not sure what it would taste fresh, but not bad old.

Deliciously fruity

Almost like a fruit soda pop. Smell like sweet malts taste like esters from the yeast. The hop presence for me was non existent. There is a slight acidic twang. Very enjoyable and very different from what I expected. The beer is complex and highly drinkable.
