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

Kita (2379) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 12, 2018
Corked bottle, 0.75l, shared with friends. Aroma of bread, yeast, spices and green apples. Pours murky dark amber color with rocky off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Taste starts with moderate sweet bready malt and honey, follows by yeast, ripe peaches and apples, mouthfeel is spicy, while finish is mild bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. A bit less than expected, but for sure still good...

DraftDodger (1959) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2018
Copenhagen 15/2 2018. 75 cl bottle from Kihosk. Goes for the classic look with a painting of a fresh loaf of bread and glass of foamy beer. Looks very rustic. Pours slightly hazy orange with big white head. Settles as dense, creamy 2 cm thick layer of foam. Substantial lacing. Aroma is not strong but fairly intense compared to other Bière de Garde I've tasted. Some sweetness, hints of fruit, Dairy and light bitterness. Medium bitterness and watery palate. Flavor is medium sweet - quite distinct. Followed by medium bitterness. Aftertaste is bittersweet. Lingering. Finish is semi-dry. Just as a Bière de Garde should be. Simple, rustic and refreshing. And a little bit too sweet for it's own good. Not anything special - but a nice fit for a simple lunch.

Fisler (874) - Bamberg, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2017
Optisch pfirsichfarben, passt gut tun Farmhouse. Ebenso die Nase, reife Wiesensommerfrüchte, Pfirsich. Im Trunk süßlich, süffig, merklich aber auch alkoholisch. Mittig wird’s dann sehr aromatisch, Fruchtkorb, Äpfel, Birnen, Trauben, alles zusammen mit einer feinen Malznote. Schön komponiert - leider nimmt der Alkohol etwas von der Drinkability.

Bitterbill (2113) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 31, 2017
From Nov 2007 This pours from 750ml caged and corked bottle a cloudy orange amber with a 2finger head of foam. Lots of nice sticky lacing. The smell has a ton of fruity notes to it. Apricot, plum, citrus...and there's some candy sugar there as well as some funk. Love it. The taste is a nice mix of the fruit along with healthy portions of funk and candy sugar and yeast. There's a nice bitter bite near and right through the finish. It has a medium mouthfeel and it's lightly carbonated. More sips in and I get some earthiness along with some bready flavour. Tasty. The funk is really hitting my taste buds in a positive way and I can't help but take more sips. The alcohol is hidden well and helps make for some very good drinkability. Man, that aftertaste really is bitter! it kind of over powers all of the other flavours I enjoyed. Still, I like this beer and I can recommend it. Purchased from Southbay Drugs and Liquors. Thanks, Joey!
