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

Nephilium (1461) - Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Mild bready aroma, pours a clear golden color with a large, constantly growing white head. There’s a lot going on in the flavor of this beer, with a touch of light fruityness in the opening, going to bready and biscuit malts, and finishing with a quick clean earthy finish.

Tap at brewery, good sour aroma, green apples and sour dough. Medium body fairly carbonated. Good example of a Biere D Garde

Swaroga (1632) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2014
Butelka 75cl. OCZY : piwo ma śliczniutki, delikatnie mętny kolor pomarańczowy. Piana jest spora o kolorze białym. NOS : piwo ma bardzo przyjemne i wyważone aromaty. Wyczuwam owocowe estry o nutach moreli i gruszki. Do tego siano, skórka pomarańcza, sok pomarańczowy, świeże zioła, surowe ciasto drożdżowe i tarta. USTA : piwo jest średnio gazowane o dosyć gęstej i tłustej konsystencji podobnej do mleka. Piwo jest średnio słodkie i wytrawne o nutach słodowych tarty i nasion wraz z nutami cierpkiej skórki pomarańczy i alkoholu. Słodkość również przypomina po prostu słodkość owocową, na przykład soku pomarańczowego. Po kilku łykach wyczuwam coraz bardziej owocowe nuty przypominające białe, słodkie i dojrzałe winogrona Muskat. Posmak piwa jest średnio trwały i przyjemny o nutach owoców i tarty : lekko estrowo kwaśny i słodki. ODCZUCIA : bardzo przyjemne estry i aksamitne w ustach ... to na pewno amerykański kraft interpretujący belgijski czy w tym przypadku francuski styl piwny. To jest piwo coś pomiędzy belgijskim blond i saison. Fajnie aromatyczny i łatwy w piciu. Mniam. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : +1

Unde (503) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2014
Hazy orange looks. Delicate small head on top and lots of lacing. Aroma has green zesty apples, fruits and some spicy yeast. Slightly sour aroma. Taste is sour and zesty with green apples and spicy yeast. Medium body and crispy carbonation. Aroma offered a lot more, so in the end a bit disappointed. This could have been a very special beer. Still a solid beer.

chinchill (2633) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 24, 2014
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos. Pours amber with a white head that soon reduces to a ring but leaves some lacing. Aroma: intriguing fruity aroma with a good malt base; hints of white wine. Flavor: more funky and less fruity than the aroma, but not challenging to drink. Lightly bitter finish. Feel: medium body; medium, lightly crisp carbonation. O: strong (ABV) for style.

monk191 (1213) - California, USA - JUN 27, 2014
An interesting, but slightly off tasting beer. Pours an average orange with a white head. Smells very herby. Taste is herby upfront, with a bit of sweetness, but then a very dry finish. Strange aftertaste. Had in the bottle.

This cloudy gold beer has a subtle funky sour aroma and flavor. It also has an ale bite and is very unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
