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

MaBeer1972 (1921) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle from Julio’s. Poured into a tulip. A clear light golden amber with a frothy off-white head that settles to a medium lace. Spicy-malt aromas and flavor. Well rounded and balanced. Peppery in the middle. Yeasty dry finish.

77ships (8678) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2015
750 ml. bottle split by 3 @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Presumably some years on the bottle but I cannot find any date so… Amber orange, small white head. Nose is oddly some Sprite (also got this in the presumably old bottle of Red Barn Ale which I had prior to this one, odd), sugary, light iron, candy, yeasty. Taste is light iron, sugar, caramel, candy, sugar, dough, some dull BE qualities, lemon & caramel. Substantial body with some light iron. Rather dull but decent.
