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.

Complex medicinal aroma, some peat?!? some wood... finish has hints of candy... simple sweet taste, quite bland... it lacks body though, pretty watery...

Pours a copper colour with a beige head that disappears quickly. Aroma is sweetness, malts. Taste is sweet, well balanced with some bitterness to it as well. Malty, bread, dark fruits. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Finish is dry.

Tasting a few unfiltered beers recently, but none with such a high alcohol content as this brew. This has a very distinct fruity- malty- herb- spice flavour that really hits the taste buds. Unfortunately I drank this too cold, straight from fridge, whereas 10-12 deg C as prescribed above, would have given a better indication of overall taste/flavours. I enjoyed it though. Nice label noted and purchased from Decant Vintners & Epicures in Mandeville Street, Riccarton, Christchurch. Awesome cafe/wine & beer store.

Slightly hazy. Powerful flavor,lots of malt. Sugar and hops and alcohol in a very harmonic balance. Dried fruit in the aroma, flavor of christmass bread and toasted nuts. Refreshing and tempting.

Pours brown with a thick whitish head. Smells of malt and fruit, mainly strawberries. Tastes of caramelized fruit and the alcohol is hidden. It’s ok.
