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.

[Bottle from BeersofEurope] Hazy brown with a moderate head. Aroma of yeast, figs, caramel. full body with a fair bit of alcohol in the finish. Not the finest beer ever made, but I was pretty hammered by this point and it did the job.

Pours a dark copper with a slight tan head. The aroma is slightly fruity with some caramel and roastedness along with a bit of funkiness. the flavor has a bit of chocolate, fruit, roasted malt, and an earthiness.

11.2 ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s in Albany, NY. Shared with my brother, ChazyRPH. Roasty, grainy, lightly vinous aroma. There are some light chocolate notes present as well. This is an interesting, but pleasant aroma that I am having some difficulty putting a finger on. Mildly hazy orangey-amber colored body with a nice frothy, tan head. Sweet, sugary malts to start, which turns more roasted in the middle. Becomes chewy, caramelly with some late vinousness present in the end. Similar to a quad. Tasty and enjoyable. A baby quad. This becomes drier as it goes on and becomes a little less drinkable.

Bottle. This is one of the oddest beers I’ve ever drank. While drinking this I started to really hate it and it became a major letdown. I decided it wasn’t going to be a drainpour and soon it really changed it’s flavor on me like that. I guess about 20 minutes of warming could really make that much a difference for a beer. Aging could do this wonders.

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 11.2 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, very fluffy white head. Fresh caramelly, nutty aroma with hints of mint . Chewy flavor with some caramel notes, nuttiness, and subtle fruitness. Thickish mouthfeel for the style. Very good.

33cL bottle. Golden amber color with nice, lasting head. The aroma is incredible with pear and strawberry and a touch of sweetness. The flavor is crisp and the yeast provides a very fresh and dry sensation. There is a slight bitterness in the aftertaste that is an interesting balance to the profile. Similar to a Belgian blonde ale. Great beer.

From the bottle pours copper with a overwhelmingly fizzy head, kinda hard to pour. Kinda funky yeast flavor shows well, giving the finish a acidic and lightly sour flavor with some yeast spice. Fruity up front, citrus and caramel with earthy tones. Finish dries it out nicely and the mild sourness keeps it refreshing.

Bottle. Pours an auburn-copper body with a large frothy white head which slowly dissipates leaving significant sheets of lace. Yeasty alcohol aroma with notes of bready oranges and butterscotch. Sweet caramel and some faint chewy fruitiness. Yeasty palate with some apparent alcohol warmth. Pleasantly toothsome leaving some spice on the finish.
