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.

Nice 330ml bottle design. Amber coloured body with light toffee aroma. A huge white cap that looks attractive in the glass. Surprisingly moderate palate compared to its strength in alcohol. Fresh apple flavour with a good share of malt and a bitter finish. Hidden alcohol. The flavours blossom as the beer warms up.

Pours bright orange/amber into a tulip. Monstrous, fluffy tan head. Sour fruit notes. Lightly carbonated and smooth. Upfront honey/hay with a lasting caramel finish. Feel (don’t taste) the alcohol.

What makes this style this style? Smells ok, looks ok, tastes ok. For being a wild yeast beer I thought it would be more wild and yeasty. and funky. Pretty balanced with a little hops and caramel in the finish. An average beer.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2006
Bottle thanks to Willblake at the NYRBG. Mostly clear golden color with a small white head. Sweet, fruity malt aroma with some caramel, yeast and a bit of green apple. Flavor starts off sweet and malty with some caramel and doughy bread before turning mildly tart on the finish. I wouldn’t have guessed this was a Biere de Garde if I wasn’t told.

Ungstrup (29076) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2006
An unclear dark amber beer with an OK beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of both caramel and yeast. The flavor is sweet matly with primary notes of caramel, but also light notes of dust, hops, and citrus - I guess it all stems from the hops. I find it good for being Frensh.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2006
330 ml bottle. Hazy orange-amber beer with a thick creamy off-white head. Sweet toasty malt, some peppery notes and a pronounced dusty character as well. Sweet, slightly fruity (apple/peach) and a distinctly earthy, UK-type of maltiness. Flavour is also quite fruity, soft but persistent earthy/herbal bitterness. Okay beer, but not great.

JK (4349) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2006
A lot of alcohol in the aroma of this beer. It reminds me of a Scotch ale. It lacks any weirdness that is present in some beers of this style, and instead has a straightforward flavor of sweet malt and very light spices. Cloudy and light red, but no visible sediment. Also a very large cream colored head, and this sticks around until the end of the beer.
