Gavroche was a generous and rebellious Paris urchin and a character in the Victor Hugo (1802-1885) novel “Les Misérables.” It is also a strong, amber beer, where the flavour of its top-fermentation yeast combines perfectly with the taste of the special malts. Fermented again in the bottle, the Gavroche beer should be served with care between 10 and 12°C.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle - thanks Lou! Murky amber pour with a big foamy head. Malty, dark fruit, and some yeast. Almost a little like a dubbel. Good stuff!

Hyvin voimakas vaahtoaminen. Erittäin tiheä, ajan mittaan ohueksi kerrokseksi laskeutuva vaahto. Väriltään kuparinruskea ja samea. Tuoksussa alkoholia, konjakkimaista hedelmäisyyttä, omenaisuutta ja mausteisuutta. Yllättävän katkera ja hapokas, mutta samaan aikaan hieman viinimäinen suutuntuma. Jälkimaussa hedelmäisyyttä, alkoholinen polte. Ei kyllä ihan osunut omaan makuun, tasapaino ei ollut mielestäni kohtallaan.

allmyvinyl (7165) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Pours clear orange gold, big frothy white head. Aromas of yeast, sherbet, honey, strawberry jam. How can something be both dry and sweet? This is, and it works! Vinious qualities. High carbonation. Long finish. Lovely.

Pours a nice amber with a huge frothy white head that leaves ample lacing; marmalade and spice on the nose; firm malt backbone with a stone fruit finish. Nice.

Complex medicinal aroma, some peat?!? some wood... finish has hints of candy... simple sweet taste, quite bland... it lacks body though, pretty watery...

Tasting a few unfiltered beers recently, but none with such a high alcohol content as this brew. This has a very distinct fruity- malty- herb- spice flavour that really hits the taste buds. Unfortunately I drank this too cold, straight from fridge, whereas 10-12 deg C as prescribed above, would have given a better indication of overall taste/flavours. I enjoyed it though. Nice label noted and purchased from Decant Vintners & Epicures in Mandeville Street, Riccarton, Christchurch. Awesome cafe/wine & beer store.
