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

From tap at the brewery. Pours cloudy golden orange with a creamy off-white head. Mild milky and caramel malty aroma. Flavour is mild spiced and smooth caramel malty. Light bitterness lurking through. Ends light spiced and lingering caramel malty. Tasty and refreshing.

A hazy orange beer with a thick orange head. The aorma is sweet spicy - especially coriander, but also lighter notes of peaches. The flavor is sweet fruity - especially peaches, leading to a dry lightly spiced end. The body is thin, and all in all I find it a bit boring.

Bottle at Brickskeller, shared with Greg and his gang, and Collin and his group. Hazy golden, medium off white head. Aroma of straw and white pepper. Taste is very much like a saison, more full body, maybe some light spice. Nice.

Hazy amber beer. Light touch of carbonation provides a softish palate. Light flavours in this beer. Saison like malt with a touch of honey. Finishes minerally and crisp. Refreshing and clean but would have liked stronger flavours.
