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.

bhensonb (13233) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 26, 2007
Aroma of stone fruit and yeast, almost berry or cherry. Deep reddish amber color with a beige head that was vigorous and laced a minim. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, something of a tart cherry flavor. The malt is something yeasty or musty or earthy, and the finish is kind of balanced between the malt flavors and some fruit bitter, like sucking on seeds or pits. This real ale needs to be slowly sipped. Fantastically rewarding.

FatPhil (12201) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 24, 2008
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Deep reddy orange, lightly hazy, large frothy head. Initially fruity aroma, turns nutty amd hoppy quite soon. Carbonation is a little harsh, lively in the mouth. Taste is a little alcoholic, and has several savoury components, and a touch of burntness to the malts. However, the overriding direction is a tingly bitterness. Big biting finish. As you dink it, the harshness subsides and it ends up being very tasty indeed. And the finish remains long.

Bottle Conditioned. Copper coloured with white carboated head. Toffee caramel sweetbeer, highly carbonated. Boiled malt with some finishing dryness.
