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.

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.

Ingevara (904) - SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2013
Slightly hazy. Powerful flavor,lots of malt. Sugar and hops and alcohol in a very harmonic balance. Dried fruit in the aroma, flavor of christmass bread and toasted nuts. Refreshing and tempting.

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

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Pours a dark reddish brown with thin off-white head that lingered thru mid-glass and left okay lacing. Nose was a pleasant, though subdued, malty dark fruit, mixed with carmel. Mouthfeel was sweet and slightly tingly, and the flavor followed the nose. Initial palate was stale and metallic, but this improved dramatically as the beer warmed. If I have this again, I’ll make sure to let it warm before drinking. An interesting beer.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle poured into a snifter. Cloudy, even murky orange with a big, mostly lasting off-white head. Initially a skunky aroma, which mellowed out a bit becoming a meaty or woody yeastiness. Aroma otherwise hard to pinpoint beyond the yeast characteristics. Sweet malt flavor with some citrus, spice and tingling alcohol on the finish. OK to try once, but not all that impressive.

MBlessing (861) - Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2015
Helles Braun starker Schaum, Geruch malzig leicht nach trockenfrüchten, Geschmack malzig leicht nach dunklem Karamell, recht schöne bitternote im Abgang, recht alkoholisch im Geschmack aber bei 8,5% auch nicht so verwunderlich

edsspoon (858) - 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.

PapaVillum (858) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2015
75 cl, flaske, 8.5 % ABV, BB 05/03/17, fødselsdagsgave fra Kirsten og Roberto, 22. marts 2015. Klar kobberfarvet Bière de Garde med flot offwhite skumkrone på 3 cm med meget fine bobler. Svinder efter en halv snes minutter til kant og overflade. Aroma af karamelmalt, træ og nødder. Dybere aroma af cognac-noter og lidt ubestemmelig frugt. Smagen er bittersød med overvægt på det bitre. Smagen er anderledes og med en rar alkoholvarme. Medium bitter og let sødme. Kroppen er mellem til solid fyldig med fin tilpasset karbonering på et medium niveau. Konsistensen er olieret. Afslutningen er bitter med ganske let sødme og slutter næsten små-besk af. Dette er, hvad jeg husker, den bedste og mest karakterfulde franske øl, jeg til dato har smagt.

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.
