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.

M_Sack (605) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle. Deep but reasonably clear amber with a thick off white head that sticks to the glass. Complex aromas encompassing malt, caramel fudge, hints of orange peel, alcohol, macerated fruits and esters. Similar flavours of caramel, macerated fruit, esters and slight oak notes, although the alcohol dominates and detracts.

Lightly cloudy, dark orange color, hazzy, with a stable head, strong aroma, with caramel, bread and some herbal notes, medium to strong body, with slight bitternes at the end, overall its worth to try.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch fruchtig malzig, würzig, hefig. Geschmack fruchtig süß, würzig malzig.

rumproasts (4828) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2014
bottle. Amber with one finger head. Mild malt sweetness and some rather bland spicing. Doesn’t really seem to go anywhere. Light alcohol.

NikkTwist (2612) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2014
Draft at Eulogy. Difficult end of the keg pour that ultimately became a clear amber with a large lasting off-white foam. Soapy lace. Amber brown fruits. Lightly toasted caramel. Feels like a mild Trippel. Does not stand out for me.

dfearnley (1663) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle to tulip Orange, caramel, molasses, grape, and over ripe fruit. It’s a dark, thick/cloudy amber with moderate carbonation and a long lasting 1 cm light tan head with decent lacing. Taste is malt, caramel, yeast, and loads of dark fruit.

Nice golden colour with white head that stays. The aroma had some hints of belgian but not overwhelming. The taste is rather fresh and even a bit citric. Quite a good beer overall.
