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.

Ihan kohtalainen olut. Mukavan voimakkaan oloinen maku tässä :) Kyllästyneen makuinen, mutta rennon mukavan oloinen maku ilman lisäaineita.

Quevillon (2550) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2006
Très belle couleur d’orange-rousse, avec un méchant collet. L’arome est un peu légé, mais très alcoolisé. Je goûte du malte de caramel, mais l’acool est trop présant.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2006
Great amber color not like most biere de Garde. Light but strong. Honey sweet but the alchol hangs out a bit to much.

hotstuff (4284) - Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2006
Bottle conditioned. Huge frothy, fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with minimal lacing, carbonated, slightly hazy, and an orange brown hue. Malty, caramel, sweet, and fruity and ditto for the flavor along with some nuttiness. Tingly mouthfeel. Medium body.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 (Bottle) Pours a deep amber body with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, nuts, herbs, and mustiness. Flavor of toasted malt and caramel with a carbonated mouthfeel.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours a reddish amber color, quite clear with a huge off-white head. Seafoam lacing. Aroma is light, perhaps a bit of fruit and caramel. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Sweet malt flavors up front with a touch of hop flowers. Somewhat spicey in the middle and finish. Tasty BdG!

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2006
Robe cuivrée aux reflets dorés surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse et persistente. Arômes de houblon amérisant et de caramel. Saveurs de malt, de caramel et d’alcool.

Lubiere (10472) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
Dark golden beer with an extra onctuous off white head. Lightly spiced malt aroma with light hops. In mouth, sweet malt with nuttyness, scotch notes, and warming alcohol. Light vanilla and wood notes develop later. Very nice. My dad says: uplifting! From Joanette, 2.69$ a bottle.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle (330ml). via trade with Lubiere. Poured slightly hazy brass with a huge feathery-foamy white head, lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of yeast, wheat flour, pungent herbs, grassy hops, alcohol. Nice sweetish grassy flavour, yeast, spices, light malt, alcohol, decently funky - alcoholic, lively and sticky mouthfeel - a little boozy, but really nice, a yeasty, herbal treat.
