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.

MiP (15296) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2007
Bottle, 8.5%. Weak sugary aroma. Hazy brown colour, small head. The flavour is OK malty, slightly sweet with a hint of cream. Some marcipan to flavour along with a little rough bitterness. Rough and mild in a good combination. High carbonation and good alcohol level.

mcberko (14661) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2010
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy amber with a huge beige head. Sweet aroma of dark fruits, caramel malt and yeast. Flavour follows suit, with a lingering sourness, dryness and yeasty taste. Nice beer.

bhensonb (14165) - 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 (14074) - 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.

Tmoney99 (13600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle. Poured clear copper with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate tart citrus spice aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft caebonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Ratman197 (13404) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2010
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting light amber head. Aromas of carmel and light fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of light carmel and light fruittiness with a crisp lightly fruity finish. Nothing special here, definitly not worth the $10!
