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.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 19, 2011
Flöska. Nice clear golden amber brown colour, huge beige head, fairly well lasting. Aroma of toasted caramel and malt, bit fruit, bit sweetness, light spice. Ok mouthfeel, bit thin. Toasted caramel and malt in the flavour, alco sweet, quite some alcohol noticed in the finish along with a bit fruit. Mild bitterness. Too much alcohol in aroma and flavour

shrubber85 (10036) - 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.

pivnizub (9900) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2013
Bouteille: Copper coloured, a bit unclear, big and stable loose off-white head, fruity-caramelly nose (almost a bit vinous) with a robust boppy counterpart; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied; bisquity-honeyish finish balanced by distinctive hops and followed by a slight alcohol-burn in the aftertaste. Nice brew...

rosenbergh (9813) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2008
330 ml bottle. Finland. Absolutely huge foamy head. Malty aroma. Caramel and warming alcohol flavour. Colder than advised.

deyholla (9762) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle thanks to Sarah. Pours a clear amber orange with a grayish head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a combination of bread, grains and light fruits. Flavor is similar with bread and grains up front with a growing light fruit note.

DrSilverworm (9672) - 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

leaparsons (9552) - Wigston, 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!

750mL c&c Gavroche Red label thanks to wickedpete at Shenandoah Throwdown. The pour is a clear tea amber topped by a giant, beige head. Ice cream rockiness persists. Awesome appearance. The nose is odd- candy corn and sugar moving to some odd metals and iron. Taste is big candy corn, mild soap, malt forward but not rich and doughy. Lemon finish. Perhaps some toasted malt qualities. Unimpressed compared to Page 24 Biere de Gardes.
