COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Unfiltered.
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.

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2014
bottle. Amber with one finger head. Mild malt sweetness and some rather bland spicing. Doesn’t really seem to go anywhere. Light alcohol.

NikkTwist (1538) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2014
Draft at Eulogy. Difficult end of the keg pour that ultimately became a clear amber with a large lasting off-white foam. Soapy lace. Amber brown fruits. Lightly toasted caramel. Feels like a mild Trippel. Does not stand out for me.

dfearnley (888) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle to tulip Orange, caramel, molasses, grape, and over ripe fruit. It’s a dark, thick/cloudy amber with moderate carbonation and a long lasting 1 cm light tan head with decent lacing. Taste is malt, caramel, yeast, and loads of dark fruit.

Nice golden colour with white head that stays. The aroma had some hints of belgian but not overwhelming. The taste is rather fresh and even a bit citric. Quite a good beer overall.

Hazy amber with a big frothy brown head. Good head retention and some thin lacing. Aroma of malt, alcohol, caramel and some hints of apple. Taste of chocolate, caramel, fruit, sourness and some dark fruits. Fairly dry, very warming. Light carbonation. A wonderful beer.

beer-yum (439) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 12, 2014
An interesting beer that combines the taste of a strong Belgian ale with a lighter than expected body.

ColaKid (51) - AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2014
A very decent Belgian style French ale, rich, malty, robust. I don’t have the vocab as per most of the beer wankers on this website who write relentless non-descript, pompous, self-righteous drivel.... This beer is quality.... Drink it.
