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.

thewolf (11209) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle. [thank you for bringing this from France, sysadm]
Pours a deep orange with a big, bubbly off white head with a slight yellow hue. Aroma is mild, some caramel, some roasted, some herbs and spices. Medium carbonation. Flavour is spicy peppery at first, then caramel sweetness and a spicy and oaky dryness at the end. Not really vinious despite the high ABV.
