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.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2007
A nice looking beer with a pillowy beige head on a hazy copper brown base. Musky aroma with some caramel malt beneath. Some sourness is also evident in the early whiff, but not on tasting. Quite bitter with a touch of funkiness lurking in the background, and a warming alcohol level that is well contained. A very interesting beer that is quite unique from anything I’ve had so far.

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2006
Overwhelming head... Reminds me of a Duvel head. Very hoppy aromas... floral... grassy... woods like... a few spices... very lite pepper ... This is a somewhat flat beer even though it looks like its very carbonated... coriander... After a few minutes and room temperature, it has a realy creamy caramel taste and aromas of a little more alcohol... Anywho... this beer is overall ok !

Amber beer with a big white head. Sweet and dry with a strong taste of yeast and malt with too much alcohol aftertaste. Quite fruity smell

bbbeer (635) - 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.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle in LA. INtensely malty, some caramel, but not sweet. finishes medium dry, very clean, I was expecting something more like a saison but the yeast has a very clean finish. Big malty beer - pretty good.

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.

Bottle, Moderate malts, some darker fruits, no hops, nice fluffy tan head, alcohol. Spicy yeast flavors, nice dry finish, not a quaffer but nice and enjoyable.
