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

KoNrRiI (1485) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2016
0.75 bottle. Clear, dark orange color and a large, off-white head of good retention leaving notable lacing. The aroma is malty, mostly caramel with a touch of hops and an unfortunate hint of metal. The taste is sweet, mostly fruity with grains, malts, and flowers all adding to the composition. A medium body, a somewhat creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long, gets slowly bitterer with time and strikes everything just a tiny bit off-balance. Overall this is certainly a good beer, hard to find much to complain, though it is not exactly praiseworthy either.

Yellow color with foam layer. Light alcoholic and yeasty nose with hints of fruits. Milky mouth feeling with a sweet and alcoholic taste. Strong and mild at the same time. Calm and light alcoholic aftertaste.

Bottle. Some apples, some grapes, but rather low in aroma. Some farmhouse. Very round and balanced, but not much of anything. I’m a bit torn about this, as it is easy to drink but rather mellow at the same time.

Luvystypotables (1917) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Aroma of bread and a hint of spice, pours a copper color with a short lasting white head. A slightly sweet taste with notes of bread and raisins with an oily feel and a decidedly bitter finish.

Rating #1508 - 16.03.2015 - On tap @ Moray’s Lounge in the Catamaran Hotel. Pours a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head, not much lacing. Aroma is of citrus, bread dough, yeast. Clean mouthfeel, medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Taste is a crisp sweetness, tempered with herbal wheaty notes, and beautifully balanced. Mild funk, medium bodied. Lovely.
