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

ctipping (1715) - Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2017
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 3/23/2014. Pale orange. Nice white head. Thick white collar. Smells of pale malt. Some belgian sweetness. Fruity esters. A little peppery. Tastes of pale malt balanced by white pepper and wine-like fruitiness. Bitter grassy finish. Medium body. Almost too heavy. Well carbonated. Straightforward, but tasty.

Very dull I think I’m not fan of the style. Nothing much I can say about it, honey is noticeable and weird not nice bitterness

biir (1137) - Berlin, - DEC 22, 2016
Tap at Stone - clear golden color with small white head. Taste is lemon, yeast, spices, medium bitter dry finish. This is my first Bière de Garde, I think I highly like this style. Would be interesting to know why this should be for women though :)

davidezdonz (425) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - NOV 4, 2016
A 1 pint 9.4 fl oz bottle, bottled sometime in 2015 (as far as I can tell), and poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass. It poured a clear copper colour with a big two finger off white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left decent lacing. Aromas were generally light, sweet malt, toasty bread, orange zest, apple, pear, earthy and spice. Tastes biscuity, light berries and caramel with a touch of honey, peppery spice and light alcohol. Dry, medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this was nice, enjoyable and easy to drink.
