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.

Rune (9405) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2006
Nice 330ml bottle design. Amber coloured body with light toffee aroma. A huge white cap that looks attractive in the glass. Surprisingly moderate palate compared to its strength in alcohol. Fresh apple flavour with a good share of malt and a bitter finish. Hidden alcohol. The flavours blossom as the beer warms up.

shrubber85 (9140) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Bottle. Dry musty malt aroma. Reddish amber with gigantic head initially that collapses quickly. Sharp acidity hits the tongue first followed by light musty malt with a moderate hops finish. Light body but the mustiness linger quite a while after swallowing. Good but could use more body.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2006
330 ml bottle. Hazy orange-amber beer with a thick creamy off-white head. Sweet toasty malt, some peppery notes and a pronounced dusty character as well. Sweet, slightly fruity (apple/peach) and a distinctly earthy, UK-type of maltiness. Flavour is also quite fruity, soft but persistent earthy/herbal bitterness. Okay beer, but not great.

leaparsons (8916) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2002
Beautiful ruby beer. Light put pleasnt aroma. One to savour, although it is a little thin. Better than the sum of its parts. Oh, and it’s woozy woo!

MoritzF (8776) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2012
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, amber colour with a big and loose, slightly tanned foamy head. A bit cheesy yeast-character with hints of cara-malt and nuts in the background. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Nutty cara-malty taste, accompanied by mildly sugary notes and a very subtle fruit-character; sweet and slightly bitter finish, again with nutty and subtle fruity accents. Nice but not directly my kind of taste. 08.VI.12

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2011 Bottled. A mid brown coloured beer with a thick whitish head with an angel delight consistency. The aroma is malty and fruity with light berries (maybe cranberries) noted. The taste shows signs of caramelized fruit, maybe strawberries, whilst the alcohol is well hidden. Score 2.9
Subsequent rating scored 3.2. Average becomes 3.0

DrSilverworm (8707) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2013
11.2oz bottle, shared by Jay. Labeled "French Red Ale". Code on back reads "1522". Clear red - orange color. Thin off-white head. Little ropes of lace. Medium to bigger body. Softer carbonation. Lightly dry texture. Nice clean malty, lightly spicy flavor. Interesting, unique, pretty tasty malt profile. Lightly sweet taste, nice light spiciness. Alcohol is well hidden. This seems like it’d be a delicious beer to enjoy with a meal. I liked this more than I expected to... It grew on me as I sipped it

330 ml bottle. Finland. Absolutely huge foamy head. Malty aroma. Caramel and warming alcohol flavour. Colder than advised.

Quack-Duck (8674) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2008
bottle. Hazy copper-yellow colour, large white head. Fruity nose. Sweet and malty with some nice spicy hops and afruity touch. The alcohol is clearly detectable and has a warming effect.
