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.

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.

Bottle. [ Thanks to oh6gdx ] Clear medium amber color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, molasses, bread, roasted. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. (271007)

Mmmm big yeast aroma and a slight funky bitter flavor. My bottle says it’s a French Red Ale and red it is. The color is a deep red almost brown. The head is big, off white, and slow to dissipate. First impression is a crisp, clean, sour drink. The pungent experience stays with you for a while. The malt balances it out a bit and increases as the beer warms. There are some red fruits in there as well.

Really awsome beer. I would say a pure taste beer. No food, no exageration, just degustation. I really liked that one. Fall beer (as in the season not the action lol)

its quite good. The Alcohol actually hits you hard at first, caramel and slight cereal makes this good. the malts is nice and hops are little in presence. The rest of the beer is a pleasant expirence.

The aroma is very grainy with hops, spice, and fruity yeast. The appearance is amber with a HUGE head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s a nice beer but not one that you should go out of your way to get.

Pours a dark reddish brown with thin off-white head that lingered thru mid-glass and left okay lacing. Nose was a pleasant, though subdued, malty dark fruit, mixed with carmel. Mouthfeel was sweet and slightly tingly, and the flavor followed the nose. Initial palate was stale and metallic, but this improved dramatically as the beer warmed. If I have this again, I’ll make sure to let it warm before drinking. An interesting beer.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Dark amber/brown pour with small tan head. Dusty, yeast aroma. Dry and big. Very complex, roasted malt, carmal, and some unexpected sweet/woody flavor. Some bite in the body. Interestingly different.

Subtle blend of caramel, tart cherries, and some spices, this is far too easy to drink. That 8.5% is completely hidden, making it even more dangerous. Not the most intricate beer in the world, but well crafted and extremely enjoyable.
