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.

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.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2006
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.

shrubber85 (10675) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Bottle. Dry musty malt aroma. Reddish amber with gigantic head initially that collapses quickly. Sharp acidity hits the tongue first followed by light musty malt with a moderate hops finish. Light body but the mustiness linger quite a while after swallowing. Good but could use more body.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Says French Red ale on the label under the name. Same label otherwise. Not too red for a red ale. Pours gold, with a massive head that fills 90% of the glass. The aroma is heavy with fruity esters and malt. Heavy body, with a flat mouth feel. A bit sour in the finish.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2006
[071-20061021] 330mL. Boozy aroma, not much else. Clear, amber-orange body with a very creamy off-white head. Tastes faintly of bandaids and citrus but mainly alcoholic and boozy. Medium body, nasty aftertaste. Overall does Not come together well.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2006
Brown colored, cloudy appearance with medium sized brown head. Aroma is sweet with raisins, fruits, obvious alcohol, toffee and even some oak. Medium bodied, surprisingly crispy carbonated. Flavor has also obvious toffee with oak and strong alcohol, aftertaste dries with lasting and too strong alcohol, some chocolate aso in aftertaste.

(Bottle at La Gueuze, Paris, 15 Oct) Dark amber colour with explosive, foamy, beige head. Fruity nose with notes of dried apricots, raisins and figs. Slightly metallic. Fruity taste with dried apricots (or peaches?), figs and prunes. Notes of chocolate and plums. Starts slightly sweet, turns drier in the spicy finish. Well balanced and very nice.

jercraigs (9840) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2006
Bottle. Dark amber, good sized creamy head. (3+) Alcoholic aroma, light malt notes. Dry alcoholic flavour with occasional moment of sweet yeast malt, light spice notes. Needs more flavour to round out the rough alcohol edges in my opinion.
