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.

11.2 oz Bottle from Johns market; nose of caramel, vanilla, and rye; clear rusty brown with a big bige head that immediately foamed out of the bottle when uncapped; flavor of toffee, some sweetness, and some figs. Very good!

MiP (15183) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2007
Bottle, 8.5%. Weak sugary aroma. Hazy brown colour, small head. The flavour is OK malty, slightly sweet with a hint of cream. Some marcipan to flavour along with a little rough bitterness. Rough and mild in a good combination. High carbonation and good alcohol level.

BBB63 (6543) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Bottle and served in my LA Chouffe tulip: Deep amber with reddish highlights topped by a huge frothy head and excellent lace. The aroma has notes of caramel and rye bread malts, old herbal hops, pear and fig, cardamom, a dusty yeast esters. The taste is sweet and malty with a bit of fruit. Mild classic hop bitterness towards the finish. Consistently bready in nature. The mouth feel is lively and sharp but lacks depth. Okay beer but left wanting more.

GoLdFiNgEr (111) - La Pocatière, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
Très belle couleur avec une bonne mousse, elle dégage un léger goût fruité. Un peu forte en alcool par contre. Semblable aux bières typiques belges.

pootzboy (1689) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
Bottle: Hazed copper-amber ale with a great cap that laces. Aromas are malty, sweet, yeasty...wisp of alcohol. Sweet caramel maltiness, some wood, smoke, tobacco, earthy dried fruit tones...nice subtle complexity...finishes wet and with a lash of licorice from the alcohol. Nice little strong ale for a French brewer.

thooper41 (556) - BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2008 11.2oz bottle: pours a hazy chestnut brown with a HUGE HEAD. aroma was almost not even there maybe a hint of hops and alcohol. flavor has a taste of alcohol with an added nut taste. overall i wouldnt buy again but wouldnt turn it down if offered would rate higher if i couldnt taste the alcohol so much. but its no so strong that it should keep you from trying this beer.

Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2007
pale golden color, with a very one dimensional aroma - just hops. The head was huge in the glass and lingered almost until the last swig. The taste was a bit thin, but it did wash done clean with a very little aftertaste. All in all, the best I can say is that it is a very average drinkable beer. At worst, I can say it is ’very French’. C’est la vie.

Sensual beer. Commercial description fits it to a T. Complex, good head and lace. Very slightly hazy amber. Mouth filling good body. Lots of malt. Long finish. Good beer. Had this at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, WI.
