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

Bottle @ ZZT X, courtesey of DutchDrebus. Pours a clear blonde beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is very yeasty, loads of vineous characters, and very grainy. Flavor has some bready, yeasty notes to it, medium sweet and not very special. Tastes like a cheap lager. Meh...

75cl bottle at home. Yellow-orange colour, white stable head. Fruity nose and taste (ripe sweet apples, banana, peach), spicy yeasts, grainy and sweet malty backbone with honey and bread tones. Aftertaste’s lingering, sweet and bitter. High carbonation, prickly mouthfeel, good body.

gEUS (1482) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2014
750 ml bottle at home. Pours cloudy orange, steady head. Aroma of honey and maltd, more of a triple character than a real farmhouse ale. Medium body, bitterness kicks in as from the mid, with high amount of alcohol. The combination of both is rather unpleasant.

slowrunner77 (7100) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 16, 2014
"pours a hazy yellow-orange in color. smells of fruit and yeast, tastes of malt and funky yeast, with a little light spice...not as predominant as with many dubbels and tripels. poured in the yeast sediment with the last 3-4 oz...changed the flavor-more yeasty and robust, but less complex. Overall, not a style that completely distinguishes itself. A good enough, but nowhere near great, beer...especially for the $$$. dug it more on tap."
