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

Wittales (884) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Appearance was hazy caramel gold with diminishing creamy off white 1 finger head, spotty lace. Aromas are sweet spicey floral farmhouse yeasts, then hints of citrus fruits, no alcohol present. Taste was sweet wheat, pale, 2-row malts, touch of caramel and honey. Hops play mild spicey lemon, orange, tangerine role with smooth funky yeasts. Palate was smooth soft CO2 with meduim body, then spicey funky lasting beautiful finish. A wonderful mix of styles... [email protected] LV

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!

Flaska hos mig, tack! Orangegrumlig med lågt vitt skum. Doft och smak av honung och jäst med stor maltsötma och kryddiga inslag. Liten värme från alkoholen, trots att den är relativt låg. Något större kropp och ganska maffig överlag. Vill placera den som något mellanting mellan en saison och en trippel. Gott och fylligt!

Keg at Brewdog Shepherds Bush, London. An orange coloured pour with a healthy white head on top. Fruity, yeasty, peach, spice aroma. Tastes quite similar, fruity, yeasty, peach, spice. It is fine but expected much more from Lost Abbey.
