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.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 I’m going to call this a beer "d’grass’. Ruby colored and slightly hazy, with a moderated white head. The aroma reminds me of a European pils, and a good one at that! Very grassy. Flavor is a nice balance between the grassy flavor and the munich malts. Don’t think of it as indicative of the style, but I liked it alot anyway! Thanks Per.

Malt and bread aroma, copper with a medium sized creamy, off white head. Taste is of strong malt. Full bodied, alcohol is apparent. Pretty good.

bierkoning (10210) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2003
Red copper color, big frothy head. Apple aroma. Very good lacing, in fact prickly. Medium bodied. Malty flavor with alcohol, just a hint of smokiness, some licorice, apple and grapes. Slightly bitter aftertaste. A bit vinous. Not bad, especially for a French beer.

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2004 Amber colour with a nice head. Malty and yeasty aroma and a taste of roasted malt. Alcohol is apparent. Dry finish. The kind of beer you appreciate during cold winter evening.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Good offering. Amber in color, slightly hazy,fine head,long lasting. Aroma more yeasty/bready/malty.Tasted less assertive in fruit character than some Belgian versions and with a touch of earthiness I assume from the hops.
