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.

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

DavidWoodruff (390) - 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.

M_Sack (383) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle. Deep but reasonably clear amber with a thick off white head that sticks to the glass. Complex aromas encompassing malt, caramel fudge, hints of orange peel, alcohol, macerated fruits and esters. Similar flavours of caramel, macerated fruit, esters and slight oak notes, although the alcohol dominates and detracts.

Malty, earthy, yeast aroma. Pours a red-orange gold with a long lingering off white head. Smooth malty sweetness with nice effervescent mouthfeel. Slight pleasant bitterness on the finish.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2007
Pours all head before condensing into a nice amber color with frothy head. A little caramel sweetness, bready, warm full mouthfeel. The alcohol is well masked. Surprisingly not bad.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2009
Bouteille de 750 ml. Dégusté avec french tickler. Biere de couleur cuivré brumeuse avec un moyen collet moyennement collant. Odeur de citron, resemblance avec du thé glacé, blé et les amandes. Gout de blé qui revient, miel, un peu le celerie et qui se termine sec.

The malts in this beer give it an aroma and flavor of dark red fruits. Sweet and flavorful.

Gramoit (356) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 Pours a dark amber colour with a thickish head. Smells of dark fruits and caramel. Palate is Very soothing and sticky with a very caramelly taste and hides the alcohol very well. Overall a very good beer and one perfect for a winters day.

La Gavroche n’est pas mauvaise du tout, quoi qu’elle ne vole pas la vedette non plus. Belle couleur ambrée et translucide. Belle mousse et belles bulles qui plus est. Nonobstant, l’arôme ainsi que le goût demeurent assez banals : au nez, le malt prend toute la place. Une petite touche de miel peut-être. En bouche c’est plus intéressant déjà : le liquide offre une belle rondeur, l’effervescence est fort agréable et l’amertume est bien équilibrée. Très beau verre tulipe qui fut donné dans l’emballage. Cheers!
