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.

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.

- 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

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.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 30, 2011
This thing is bottled up like it contains the elixer of life itself...rediculous. Pours red-copper with a moderate off-white head and tenacious lacing. Nose isn’t particularly great, with generic malt, herbs, light hops, and a touch of skunk. Flavor is both sweet and a little sour and again herbal with light bitterness. Very uniform. Finish is bland and sticky. This is nowhere near worth the effort or the price.

PeatyPete (426) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2013
Amber Coloured. Yeast smell/bananas. Taste in malt and bread-like. Aftertaste has something of chocolate or Nutella.

DavidWoodruff (422) - Windsor, California, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Cloudy brownish red color with a quickly subsiding off-white head. Aroma of raw almonds and brown sugar. Dark candy sugar flavors and malty sweetness coat the palate. Just enough bittering hops to keep it interesting.
