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.

I should have heeded the advise of the person a couple of posts before me. Explosive! Definitely open this one over the sink. So far, it has a beautiful pumpkin orange color, with lively carbonation in the glass. The nose reminds me of yeasty bread and the flavor is offset by the carbonation. The carbonation does lead to a sharp flavor, the body’s reaction to CO2. I will let this one sit for a few and all will be well with the world. Well Done!

Godfather50 (108) - SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Pours copper colour with finely conditioned head. Sweet with strawberry and sour fruit that quickly becomes very dry. Warming after from the ABV. Just not enough complexity to justify the one bottles your limit ABV.

SarkyNorthener (2927) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
Bottle from carrefour@calais, France. Copper beer with large foam head. Aroma of strawberries, caramel and malts. Taste is yeast, malts, hint of strawberry and dry fruit. There is a little alcohol kick in the finish. Very good, a beer to appreciate rather than enjoy.

AirForceHops (4419) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 9, 2015
750 ml bottle purchased at Cigarette City, Seabrook for a price of $9.99. Amber type color thin lasting head. Aroma is light earthy spice, mild herbs and a different yeast Syrian I don’t remotely recognize.

The flavor has a balance of sweet malts and a herbal earthy character that leads to a dry finish. This could be a slightly better if fresh. Of course without any type of best before or bottle date it’s hard to know if this could be better or not. It’s French so likely this is as good as it gets.

Amber coloured. Toffee on the nose. Strong & sweet with a big caramel taste with some fruits. A little too malt heavy. Rated by BrewTom

Butelka, warka do 01-09-17. Olbrzymia, prawie biala piana, ladna, srednio szybko opadajaca, zostawiajaca fajnie nierowna, pofaldowana warstwe, brudzi szklo. Samo piwo prawie przejrzyste, opalizujace, bursztynowo-rubinowe. Aromat w pierwszym odczuciu - kwasne jablka. ale takie fajne, owocowe. Pozniej dochodza mocne karmelowe nuty, troche chleba, generalnie w slodowa strone. NIeco tez suszonych owocow, nieco przyprawowosci i nieco tej nutki charakterystycznej dla BdG (choc wcale nie tak duzo). w smaku - kwasno-slodkie, kwasnosc zanika wraz ze wzrostem temperatury. prawie bez goryczki, za to ze szczypiacym lekko w jezyk, wysokim wysyceniem. alkohol przyzwoicie ukryty. Inne od tych kilku probowanych przeze mnie. Dosc malo ciala. I faktycznie niezle. i przez kwaskowata nute ciekawe, choc smaczniejsze jak dla mnie (i bardziej w stylu) w sumie po ogrzaniu
