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.

[bottle] Reddish amber in color, almost clear. Spicy, alcoholic malt aroma. Sweet fruit flavors balance well with alcohol and some slight acidic complexity.

bbbeer (710) - 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.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 8, 2008
11.2oz brown bottle from A-1 To-Go in Gardiner. Pours a hazy golden almost red body with nearly an inch of off-white head. Smell is not overwhelming, but consists of spice, caramel, and fruit. Tastes fruity - like citrus, apple, pear... Some roast, yeast, and slight alcohol is apparent. Very dry, one of the driest beers I’ve had in some time. Fairly clean on the finish Medium in body with vigorous carbonation. A fairly easy drinker considering the abv. Not bad at all, but not necessarily something I’ll be seeking out again very soon. Well worth the try though, very unique.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2006
Amber/brown beer with an off-white head. Fruity, fresh, malty aroma. tastes caramel and roasted malts, a bit licorice and cinnamon, sweet, nutty and just a bit woody/nutty. finishes a bit sourrish and spicy. Could use some more body, i guess. nice sipper thought.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle. 11/12/14. Pours translucent amber with a fluffy, fast-fading off-white head. Aroma is very fruity, dark berries, cherries, some grapes, earth, farmyard, salt, leather. Taste is fruity, berries, leather, vanilla, earthy, bubblegum, fruit esther qualities reminiscent of Belgian yeast strains; finish is fruit and earthy with an unfortunate hint of oxidation. Lacing is full and dense throughout. Medium carbonation with small but active bubbles. Mouth feel is medium-full bodied, a bit oily. Tasty.

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.
