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.

Cloudy yellow. French yeast in the aroma and flavor, which gives a light spice quality as well. Dry malt in the finish.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 Bottle... Lightly hazy orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Malty, fruity aroma. Smells a bit like fruit punch. The flavor is a little too sweet. Malty and vinous with light bitterness... port wine. Medium-bodied and scouring with moderate carbonation. Finishes bone-dry and lightly bitter.

Sammy (10327) - 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.

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

adnielsen (10312) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2011
Bottle @ home. Hazy, burnt orange appearance with a big, foamy orange/tan head. Belgian yeast, sweet orange/mango, and light dust in the nose. Pretty sweet, Belgian yeasty, slightly spicy, a touch bitter flavor. Mostly yeasty, fruity finish with a touch of dust and bitterness.

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.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 19, 2011
Flöska. Nice clear golden amber brown colour, huge beige head, fairly well lasting. Aroma of toasted caramel and malt, bit fruit, bit sweetness, light spice. Ok mouthfeel, bit thin. Toasted caramel and malt in the flavour, alco sweet, quite some alcohol noticed in the finish along with a bit fruit. Mild bitterness. Too much alcohol in aroma and flavour

Rune (10006) - 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.

Ferris (9806) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle - Grain and bready sweet malts. Bit hazy copper with a rich beige head. Slight sour bitterness, caramel and bready malts, booze and fruity finish. Dry in the end and actually quite nice, but I couldn’t drink more than a glass.
