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.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2006
An unclear dark amber beer with an OK beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of both caramel and yeast. The flavor is sweet matly with primary notes of caramel, but also light notes of dust, hops, and citrus - I guess it all stems from the hops. I find it good for being Frensh.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a cloudy, warm, dark, orangey golden with a tall, dense and lasting off-white head leaving quite some lacework. Lightly fusty aroma. Quite a full body, sweetish caramel, notes of wood and apple/calvados, sherry and earth. Very complex and very lovely. 180807

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2006 Bottled. Orange coloured, huge white foamy, very lasting head and leaves nice lacing. Malty and fruity aroma with hints of caramel. Sweet malty taste with hints of caramel. Alcohol is pretty wellhidden but shows a bit in the finish. Taste is a bit unbalanced, but still this is a very fine beer. 7 5 7 3 14

Re-rate: Bottled. Amber colour, huge beigeish bubbly head. Aroma of spices, alcohol, fruits and lots of caramellish malts. Also a bit white chocolate. Flavour is fruity, caramellish malty, creamy and spicy. Pleasant carbonation. Some roast in aftertaste, along with caramellish malts. Was even better than I remembered. Pleasant "session"beer. 8 5 7 4 15.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2002
[1 year after the exp. date] </br>Cloudy brown-amber colour, too much carbonation. Malt nose, nuts. Good malt taste, too much alcohol, liquorice; warming. Ordinary palate. Doesn’t age well, and gets some Madeira character.
