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.

Bottle. Beautiful clear amber pour with a thick head. Aroma is sweet and bready, some fruit and caramel, quite nice. Flavour is also sweet, fruit and bread, a bit cloying without much bitterness to balance, but some nice flavours.

I had this bottle for some 3 years before finally opening it. Brownish amber - I rarely use the word "amber", but here I think that it does apply. Lovely aromas of sweet caramel and booze. Nice, malty on the tongue, sweet and rather spicy, more of the bakery stuff, such as allspice, with dried apricots and stone fruits.Full bodied, great concoction!

Magela (126) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - AUG 8, 2015
De cara apresenta um tom marrom pouco comum. Seu aroma já deixa claro que é uma cerveja mais encorpada; uma mistura doce com um "que" de álcool. Seu sabor é maltado forte característica tipica de uma cerveja com fermentação extra pós envase. Final prolongado.

Wanderings878 (78) - ITALY - JUL 28, 2015
Bottiglia. Colore ramato intenso, schiuma non molto abbondante e poco persistente. Aroma di caramello (molto evidente), note di frutta dolce e malti. Gusto dolce ma per niente stucchevole, ben equilibrato, caramello sempre in netta evidenza. Finale lievemente amaro e secco. Ben carbonata e molto piacevole da bere. Positivamente sorpreso, birra molto buona.

TorbenJensen (1444) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2015
This is a Biere de Garde, and it has beautiful creamy foam in a light amber and clear ale. Good fruit aromas rise from the glass and in its aroma you will also find the typical aroma of wheat malt and fresh grain. The taste has soft light butterscotch to begin with and it has an almost creamy fullness in the mouth, where it gently delivers little peach and citrus flavors that blends in well with its malt sweetness. Hop bitterness is continuous and forms a perfect setting for a very tasty and full-bodied ale.

Godfather50 (176) - SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Pours copper colour with finely conditioned head. Sweet with strawberry and sour fruit that quickly becomes very dry. Warming after from the ABV. Just not enough complexity to justify the one bottles your limit ABV.

vidmidia (275) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - MAY 10, 2015
Vermelha escura, límpida. Espuma abundante e duradoura. Aroma de ameixas e uvas. Sabor equilibrado de ameixas, bem frutada. Álcool perceptível. Retrogosto de longa duração com final levemente amargo e salgado.

SarkyNorthener (3917) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
Bottle from carrefour@calais, France. Copper beer with large foam head. Aroma of strawberries, caramel and malts. Taste is yeast, malts, hint of strawberry and dry fruit. There is a little alcohol kick in the finish. Very good, a beer to appreciate rather than enjoy.
