COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From the French word "Garde" meaning something worth keeping, this Farmhouse Styled Ale is a most delicious companion to a loaf of freshly baked bread from the oven. Grab a seat on the porch, some soft cheese and a tree ripened apple from your grandmother's old orchard. Relax and watch the evening arrive as the afternoon sun is consumed by the illuminating moon over the gardens. We brewed Avant Garde for you, our friends and families. Here's to things worth guarding over. http://www.lostabbey.com

Caramel and some Belgian yeast. Some candy sugar with some balanced Belgian character. Finished with nice mellow fruits. Well balanced brew within all these flavors.

ABT_S54 (275) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
75cl bottle shared in a chalice. Light orangey colour with a voluminous white head which lasts well. Aroma is spiciness, Belgian yeast and stone fruits. Taste is perfectly balanced and very moreish. In addition to the usual spiciness a definite hint of orange is present which makes this bittersweet and spiciness with a slight earthiness. Very impressive effort and very flavoursome example of the style.
