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.

kerenmk (2400) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Cloudy brown with a creamy head and floaties. Sweet, spoiled cheesecake aroma, tastes unpleasingly sour and lemony - bloody wrong! Sour finish, medium body and disgusting. Old bottle, probably bad storage.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
33cl bottle from Liberty, served in a chalice. Pours a cloudy orange-red with a tiny beige head. Aroma: Yeast, malt, grapes, leaves, hints of lemon. Palate: Thick bodied, fizzy, foamy, long finish. Taste: sweet start, quickly turns bitter. Small hint of a spicy burnt feeling in the finish. It’s okay.

Butters (3778) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Was fairly disappointed with this. But probably, only because I was told it was a flemish red, which, while similar, is certainly not a flemish red. Poured a semi-clear amber with fair near white head. Slightly fruity and just a small twinge of tartness. Not all that enjoyable.

DrSilverworm (6477) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2013
11.2oz bottle, shared by Jay. Labeled "French Red Ale". Code on back reads "1522". Clear red - orange color. Thin off-white head. Little ropes of lace. Medium to bigger body. Softer carbonation. Lightly dry texture. Nice clean malty, lightly spicy flavor. Interesting, unique, pretty tasty malt profile. Lightly sweet taste, nice light spiciness. Alcohol is well hidden. This seems like it’d be a delicious beer to enjoy with a meal. I liked this more than I expected to... It grew on me as I sipped it

pivnizub (8888) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2013
Bouteille: Copper coloured, a bit unclear, big and stable loose off-white head, fruity-caramelly nose (almost a bit vinous) with a robust boppy counterpart; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied; bisquity-honeyish finish balanced by distinctive hops and followed by a slight alcohol-burn in the aftertaste. Nice brew...

dyetube (1182) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle from kegs & barrels Plano, TX. Pours a deep copper with a medium white head. The aromas are malt, bread, bubblegum. The mouthfeel is watery and slightly dry with a medium body and good carbonation. Not a bad beer at all. Cheers!

Jado (533) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear bronze with a fluffy beige head that sticks around and leaves good lacing. Lively carbonation. Aromas of peach, caramel, stewed apple and cinnamon. The taste starts out with some deep fruit before a hit of hop bitterness in the mid-palate. That slips away leaving some caramel sweetness. Finishes quite cleanly with some citrus and spice in the aftertaste. Excellent.

solidfunk (4027) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Pours dark with some cloudiness. Tastes good for style. Aroma of caramelized malt and sugar with some dark fruit. Good overall beer. Finishes sweet with caramel. Some basement barrel, but very much like a dark Belgian strong. Bottle from Steamworks.

DialSquare (2692) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Corked bottle from Market Square liquors. Deep orange pour with a huge fluffy off-white head that takes forever to dissipate. Aroma is sweet caramel, yeast, citrus and pepper. Tastes are along the same lines with a light background tartness. Also dark fruit and bready. Medium slick palate. Interesting.
