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.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - JUN 23, 2011
aroma is bright with yeast, citrus, and grain. slightly cloying and somewhat lager-y, but also lots of apples. pours an almost clear light amber with thick fluffy beige head. flavor is fruity and sweet but not overly so, with an apple-y crispness. medium body, quite dry but fluffy with carbonation, nice sweet finish. this is quite good, and doesn’t have too much of the characteristic french sweetness.

Jado (591) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear bronze with a fluffy beige head that sticks around and leaves good lacing. Lively carbonation. Aromas of peach, caramel, stewed apple and cinnamon. The taste starts out with some deep fruit before a hit of hop bitterness in the mid-palate. That slips away leaving some caramel sweetness. Finishes quite cleanly with some citrus and spice in the aftertaste. Excellent.

750ml bottle. Clear orange body, big yellow head with good retention, but almost no lacing. Aroma of grains, yeast, toffee, dried fruits. Taste is sweet and boozy: caramel, apricot and apple jam, yeast, floral hops. Medium oily body.

dandeman (584) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Évaluation no. 104 - Juillet 2011. Au nez, de légers houblons et de subtils caramels. La couleur est cuivrée et floue. La mousse est abondante et très persistante. L’attaque est assez houblonnée avec des notes légères de caramel. Combinaison alcool et acidité très défini. Rappelle les lambics.

Pours a hazy copper-red with a thick off-white head. Smells of basement, hay, caramel. Taste is mildly sweet and mildly bitter - high carbonation.

Complex medicinal aroma, some peat?!? some wood... finish has hints of candy... simple sweet taste, quite bland... it lacks body though, pretty watery...

martinrumsam (557) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2012
bottle pours hazy amber with full beige head . aroma is caramel , dark fruit and yeast . fully carbonated with rich mouthfeel . taste is heavy sweet to start like the aroma but then a pleasant light sour bitterness emerges that cleanses the palate to leave a juicy refreshing aftertaste . Quite enjoyable

White large and strong head. Dark amber color. Aroma is fruity with spicy, walnut and light alcohol notes. Flavor is fruity too, with raisins, apricots and light caramel tones, ending in a moderately sweet, fruity finish. Medium to full bodied.
