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.

Nice medium copper color. Little nose or head on this sample. The taste is sweet and malty, notes of caramel, but no noticeable fruit.

pictoman (777) - 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.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2011
Bière sur lie légèrement trouble, presque claire, couleur de cuivre sous un abondant col blanc et aérien. Des arômes capiteux de fruits confits, de céréales grillées et d’alcool. Franche amertûme et une pointe d’acidité. Fine effervescence constante. Finale légèrement amère.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Dark amber color, with huge off white foamy head. Aroma is very malty, slightly sweet, creamy, with caramel and cherry notes, a hint of chocolate. Flavor is malty and sweet, carbonated, caramel, and a bit of sourness. Palate could be a bit thicker.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2004
Great beer with an intens amber color and a fine beige creamy head. Good complex malty nose with outspoken malty aroma’s. In the nose you can notice hints of nuts, wood, rice crispy’s faint touch of apricot and honey. All the aroma’s are well in balance with a clear hoppyness and a faint touch of mint. The taste is very fine, complex and medium boddied. The mouthfeel is refreshing and malty, it brings some mintyness in the taste and the afthertaste is fine and elegant. The alcohol is outstandingly integrated is this top brew. It is Frensh, and it is damn good.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - APR 5, 2007
Amber, hazy with a nice head and lace. Aroma of toasted toffee like malts, some funky yeast, hint of hops, raisons and others. Medium bodied, lively carbonation makes it seem lighter, slides down the throat with velvet like ease. Malty flavor with alot of yeast elements, an earthy/rustic brew, balanced and clean, no sign of 8.5%, would not call it terribly complex but a well made brew for sure.

edsspoon (756) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
Hazy amber with a big frothy brown head. Good head retention and some thin lacing. Aroma of malt, alcohol, caramel and some hints of apple. Taste of chocolate, caramel, fruit, sourness and some dark fruits. Fairly dry, very warming. Light carbonation. A wonderful beer.

Dark translucent orange color with large off-white head and some lacing. Aroma was very weak with light malts. Flavor had light fruit and malt flavors, some caramel and spices. It did taste a little oxidized, I’m not sure how old the bottle was, but I think it would have been more flavorful if fresh.
