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.

One of the better Biere de Garde’s that I’ve had. The flavor is a little muted, but pleasant. It blends caramel sweetness with hints of Flemish Red/Brown character. Just sour enough to keep it interesting. Full mouthfeel. Yeasty, astringent. Smooth.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle. Huge tan head over a clear red-amber body. Excellent lacing. Aroma-taste of brown sugar, dried fruit, leather, a hint of spices balanced, with a slightly metallic-minerally finish. Light to medium bodied.

budedou (483) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - AUG 26, 2014
- 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

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Clear amber color with minimal white head. Sweet bready, malty, aroma with hints of dried fruits (dates, raisins, cherries). Strong acidic fruit flavors with malt and a bit of bitterness in the finish. Decently carbonated, fairly soft mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff.

Pours a clear orange red color with and off white head. Aroma is hoppy and some caramel. Falvors is again hoppy and caramel, with a hint of dry fruits and of yeast. Good carbonation, with a light bitter finish.

Is very acidy. Has quite a bite. Not hoppy and a bit of a malty going on. Julie says meh. She gives a 1.2

Thick head. Strong carbonation which keeps the beer light and fresh. Full bodied. Complex flavours. Brioche, toffee apple, earthy, champagne finish. I want some more please.

My first French ale, surprisingly good. Nice combination of malt and yeast flavors. It was easy to drink

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - APR 12, 2008
I had higher hopes for this. Amber pouur with an off white head. Aromas of spices and dark fruits. The taste is much the same with a hint of molasses.

Amber Coloured. Yeast smell/bananas. Taste in malt and bread-like. Aftertaste has something of chocolate or Nutella.
