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.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2009
Bouteille de 750 ml. Arômes de malt caramel, légère touche de levure épicée. Très belle robe cuivrée et mousse abondante, effervescence active. Très bien maltée, le caramel est accompagné d’une légère touche épicée (la levure ?). L’effervescence active aide à alléger le corps. Finale assez sèche, où l’alcool se pointe. Intéressant.

Bottle @ Quinns. Brandy coloured with a malty off white head. Roasted malt nose. Taste of malt, nuts and caramel. Simple, but pleasant and drinkable.

annunz123 (948) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 18, 2012
22 oz. bottle with a complicated flip top that should have come with a manual. After some quality time with a screwdriver and a corkscrew, this pours cloudy reddish brown with a generous head. Caramel, candy sugar, and maybe a little apple in the aroma. Taste starts with bread a caramel. Finish has a little smoke, more hop bitterness than I expected, and some alcohol. Nice.

StoutHead (943) - DENMARK - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours an unclear red color. Aroma of malt and straw. Taste is of malt, caramel, bread, yeast, nuts, spices, fruits and alcohol. It’s a bit like an ale but a lot more tangy. Full body and so much carbonation it exploded out of the bottle. Didn’t like it much.

Bottle. Orange beer with a tall foamy head. Nice caramelly and hoppy aroma. Sweetish flavor with some nice hoppy bitterness. Medium body. Feels fizzy in the mouth.

pictoman (920) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
Poured from 330mL bottle. Hazy orangish brown with full off-white head. Aroma of molasses, bready malt, dark fruits - figs, plum. Light taste, a little flat. Caramel and sweet roasted malts. A little lacking on the finish.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Says French Red ale on the label under the name. Same label otherwise. Not too red for a red ale. Pours gold, with a massive head that fills 90% of the glass. The aroma is heavy with fruity esters and malt. Heavy body, with a flat mouth feel. A bit sour in the finish.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a huge beige head that lasts ages and also lots of chunks. The aroma is light but has notes of malt, caramel, honey and citrus. The flavour has a slight tartness to it and has yeast, citrus, malt, caramel and a little woodiness. Medium body, with high carbonation, and a long bitter finish. Very nice.
