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.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Pours a murky brown with large off-white head. Somewhat unusual aroma, raisins, citrus, dark malts. Flavor takes quite a bit of getting used to, and was extremely intense for the first few sips, with a sharp (think cheese) bitterness. Sour at times, lingering brown bread, black tea, and malt finish, lively carbonation. On the dark end of the biere de garde scale, not unlike a thin bodied dubbel as well. Certainly got better as it warmed.

ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2007
My bottle had aged approximately 12 months. This is s fine sweet aroma floral scented brew. Strawberry aroma with a delicate hint of cherries and vanilla. The berr has a densely bronze cloudy hue with a heavy bubble tannin float. The float is quick to dissapate with moderate lacing. The flavor have a minor suble sweet kriek flavor with a profound bubbly champagne finish. There is also a hint of plums hidden. An excellent full-bodied full-spirited and robustly flavored carbonated brew in the French champagne flavor. Very Good.

bbbeer (613) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Orange, cloudy, bubbly, small light tan head. Aroma hay, caramel, yeast. Medium body, carbonated, hardly any alcohol. Flavor is sweet. Malty caramel, candy-like, esters. Hint of citrus. Syrupy. Not bad, but not great balance, needed either a little more bitterness or acidity.

kopher (593) - 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.

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
