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.

Bière rouge de 8.5 % d’alcool. Beau col mousseux au versement. Bonne amertume en bouche. Légère touche sucre. Gout sucre en bouche, à la limite caramélisé. Goût céréalier. Un peu de torréfaction, mais minime. Très bonne !

Amber pour with frothy white head. Fruity nose, hints of strawberry. Little tart but not much flavor. Maybe a little malt, little else. OK.

Orange, cloudy, bubbly, small light tan head. Aroma hay, caramel, yeast. Medium body, carbonated, hardly any alcohol. Flavor is sweet. Malty caramel, candy-like, esters. Hint of citrus. Syrupy. Not bad, but not great balance, needed either a little more bitterness or acidity.

Cloudy brownish red color with a quickly subsiding off-white head. Aroma of raw almonds and brown sugar. Dark candy sugar flavors and malty sweetness coat the palate. Just enough bittering hops to keep it interesting.

Bouteille 330ml. De couleur ambrée-orangée et très légèrement voilée. Nez de grains de malt aux notes rôties et terreuses, léger de caramel avec des notes de sucre brun, de levures fruitée, d’épices (poivre), de houblon herbeux et d’alcool. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux notes huileuses. Notes de levures fruitées (agrumes, traces de poires) et épicées (poivre) lors l’entrée en bouche rapidement suivi d’un goût de grains de malt sucrés, moyen de caramel aux notes auquel se rajoute une légère amertume de houblon herbeux avec un moyen goût d’alcool jusqu’en finale. Post-goût moyen et sec, légèrement amer d’alcool, léger de grains sucrés et léger de houblon herbeux.

La Gavroche n’est pas mauvaise du tout, quoi qu’elle ne vole pas la vedette non plus. Belle couleur ambrée et translucide. Belle mousse et belles bulles qui plus est. Nonobstant, l’arôme ainsi que le goût demeurent assez banals : au nez, le malt prend toute la place. Une petite touche de miel peut-être. En bouche c’est plus intéressant déjà : le liquide offre une belle rondeur, l’effervescence est fort agréable et l’amertume est bien équilibrée. Très beau verre tulipe qui fut donné dans l’emballage. Cheers!

Average beer. Good- looking dark amber with fine carbonation and thick beige head, but not much depth of flavor. Too sweet to be sessionable. Better to share a 750mL than to drink solo.

Minderbinder (1671) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle 750ml [At least 1 year old, BBF 14/12/12 whatever that means] Pours clear amber with medium beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma is of malt, caramel, sweetness (almost candiesque). Taste is of malt, caramel, near-candi sugar, yeast, spices, sligth acidity. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Good, refreshing. Nice sugar features.

Bottle (750 ml) probably 1 - 1½ year old. Hazy amber with a medium creamy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of candi sugar, malt and alcohol. Taste is moderately sweet with malt, candi sugar, fruits and alcohol. Medium body. Pretty simple brew but really well-balanced, easy to drink and thirst quenching.
