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.

dandeman (809) - 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.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2010
750 ml corked bottle. Aged approx one year. Pours copper in colour, yeast suspended throughout. Biit of a gusher. Small, off white head. Mild, caramel aroma, taste is similar, mainly caramel malt. Highly carbonated. Enjoyable!

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours copper with a huge head. Aromas of malts and yeast, flavors fairly sweet, but not overpowering. Clean finish. Hints of hops are noticeable on the palate, the alcohol is well hidden.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 20, 2009
21/10/2009. 33cl bottle courtesy of TheGrandmaster. Gorgeous deep rose gold, just off-brilliat, with a huge cream airy head. Pretty clean... Caramel and subtle stewed fruits, with a surprisingly warm alcohol note. Tidier in the mouth, where it seems like a bock fermented with a subtle ale yeast... slips down way too easily. Pretty nice but I can’ figure out if it’s a bus stop beer for those classy French or a beer worthy of its literary association... I like anyway, as confusing as it is.

budedou (779) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - AUG 26, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2016 - 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

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.
