Flossmoor Station Avante Garde Biere de Garde


Formerly brewed at Flossmoor Station Restaurant & Brewery
Flossmoor, Illinois USA
Style: Bière de Garde | Ratings: 18 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7%
Avante Garde is a deep coppery red that begins with sweet malty aroma. Flavors of dark fruit are balanced against a toasted, bready malt body. This style is tradionally a Northern France/Belgian farmhouse style that was set down to age over the warm months. ("de Garde" means "To guard" or "store" similarly to "lagern" the German version of storing beer.) Avante Garde has a slightly musty cellar character with very little hop presense. But at 7% watch out for a beer that will warm you up a bit if you aren’t careful.
