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.

brekeriet (139) - - JAN 9, 2011
Sweet and fresh aroma, malty, hoppy, caramel. Nice head. Well balanced taste. A bit harsh palate. Interesting beer, but there’s something missing.

StoutHead (646) - DENMARK - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours an unclear red color. Aroma of malt and straw. Taste is of malt, caramel, bread, yeast, nuts, spices, fruits and alcohol. It’s a bit like an ale but a lot more tangy. Full body and so much carbonation it exploded out of the bottle. Didn’t like it much.

Moravius (494) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2014 Flasche (75 cl, MHD: 06/15), etwa 2 Jahre im Keller gelagert. - Helles Rotbraun, leicht trüb. - Nase süßsäuerlich obergärig-fruchtig mit Karamel und herbem Pfirsich. - Antrunk brotig malzig und für meinen Geschmack deutlich zu süß, mit Anklängen von Milchschokolade, gleichzeitig dumpf säuerlich mit matter Frucht (Mandarine), schwach krautig-herb. Prickelnd rezent, dünnes Mundgefühl. Im Abgang leicht säuerliche, krautige Herbe. - Eigenartige, nicht recht stimmige Mischung süßsäuerlicher Aromen, zu brausig und ohne Tiefgang. Nicht mein Fall. - Eigenartigerweise schmeckt der Rest aus der angebrochenen Flasche am nächsten Tag besser als das frische Bier ...

- Grain and bready sweet malts. Bit hazy copper with a rich beige head. Slight sour bitterness, caramel and bready malts, booze and fruity finish. Dry in the end and actually quite nice
