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.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 1, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 Re-rate 7/9/14: Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Vova. Candies, fruits, sweet, a bit of cardboard. 5/3/5/3/10=2.6

Bottle at a tasting. Thanks Oren. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma of malt, caramel hints and some fruitiness. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of fruitiness, alcohol and mild bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied. Not bad and doesn’t feel like 8.5% but lacks some character. 6/3/6/3/13=3.1

kevnic2008 (11354) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2012
Cloudy yellow. French yeast in the aroma and flavor, which gives a light spice quality as well. Dry malt in the finish.

A delicious, well-balance brown ale. Though it isn’t anything spectacular or amazing.

Sammy (11177) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2006
The yeast taste predominates and it is more of a decent Blegium produced outside of France. Reminded me more of a Unibroue than a beer de garde, that flavour being understated. Quite drinkable, some grain and creaminess in mouthfeel.. Nice yeasty head and pleasant aroma.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2006
Nice 330ml bottle design. Amber coloured body with light toffee aroma. A huge white cap that looks attractive in the glass. Surprisingly moderate palate compared to its strength in alcohol. Fresh apple flavour with a good share of malt and a bitter finish. Hidden alcohol. The flavours blossom as the beer warms up.

Meilby (10944) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast and fruity hops. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

shrubber85 (10675) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Bottle. Dry musty malt aroma. Reddish amber with gigantic head initially that collapses quickly. Sharp acidity hits the tongue first followed by light musty malt with a moderate hops finish. Light body but the mustiness linger quite a while after swallowing. Good but could use more body.
