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

Bottled on 9/1/12 consumed on 9/11/13. Let’s see how well it garded. Hazy orange pour big frothy head. Smells like apple cider vinegar/lemony, german hops, yeast. Tastes like a musty yeasty bland brown ale. Brettanomyces comes in here and blankets. Maybe too much secondary ferment. At least it’s balanced. So balanced it’s boring.

Amber with a good pale head. Aroma is caramel, spice, hint of honey and dried stone fruits. Light bodied, starts lightly malty on the palate but finishes lightly dry and earthy. Taste is caramel, Belgian spice, earthy grain. Nice.

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

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 :)

Bottle shared. Poured a murky amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is toffee caramel, sweet malt, yeast, alcohol. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich smooth crisp, sweet malty, fruity alcohol, dry yeast palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

davidezdonz (407) - 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.

MelvinKalksma (1303) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, yeast, wood, fruit and bread.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque golden/amber beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, yeast, wood and fruit; ends slightly dry with bread.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Extremely good for how not intense it actually is. Probably lost a lot of hop flavours, but the aging adds a really rustic feeling to this beet at the same time.
