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.

Is this thing corked? Because the bottle lip would make you think it was. Very fruity aroma and slightly chemical. Nice red/amber cloudy pour into a snifter at L’Albatros in Cleveland, with an inch tall off-white head. The flavor was incredibly similar to a Williamsburg Pale Ale. Not my thing.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 15, 2010
Pours reddish amber with huge frothy head; aroma of toasted caramel, dried fruits and berries; medium body, foamy carbonation; flavor of toffeish malt and dried fruits; finish is slightly hoppy, hot and spicy.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 1, 2006
fairly rich with a little butterscotch, clean and complex flavor of pear and golden plum with moderate thyme and oregano. I think. Sage. Bog Myrtle??? Oh I dunno, sorta spicy. Very nice beer, am definitely gonna get more...

RaginCajun (319) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Very aromatic, floral/hops mainly, but some skunkiness/alcohol at the end. Cloudy amber body with a nice big head. I generally agree with other raters’ comments, nice mouthfeel, but too much bite on the aftertaste.

TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Subtle blend of caramel, tart cherries, and some spices, this is far too easy to drink. That 8.5% is completely hidden, making it even more dangerous. Not the most intricate beer in the world, but well crafted and extremely enjoyable.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2006
33cL bottle. Golden amber color with nice, lasting head. The aroma is incredible with pear and strawberry and a touch of sweetness. The flavor is crisp and the yeast provides a very fresh and dry sensation. There is a slight bitterness in the aftertaste that is an interesting balance to the profile. Similar to a Belgian blonde ale. Great beer.

Snoro (294) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 D’une odeur forte et d’apparence brumeuse avec une belle robe et dentelle. d’un bonne saveur et sans arrière-goût. Dans son ensemble, elle est une bonne bière forte avec un bon goùt épicé.

UM02 (294) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 13, 2011
Strong alcohol taste that kills any other flavour other than some sweetness. Tastes a bit like a bock beer with some cheap whiskey added to it. Not impressed at all.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Smells of pale malt, hint of melanoiden sweetness, nuts, apple. Taste is similar, with the apple showing more. Slight tart crispness on the finish in combo with the intense carbonation cuts through the 8.5% and keeps the palate fresh. Almost champagne like finish.
