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.

Smelled like Belgian sugars... poured a cloudy brown. Maybe it was past the normal date... it tasted somewhat metallic... not that good.

maeib (8749) - 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

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 Bottle... Lightly hazy orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Malty, fruity aroma. Smells a bit like fruit punch. The flavor is a little too sweet. Malty and vinous with light bitterness... port wine. Medium-bodied and scouring with moderate carbonation. Finishes bone-dry and lightly bitter.

notalush (5728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2006
Copper color with lasting head - floral, perfum-like aroma, with background spicy hops - a bit one-dimensional for the style - it drinks more like a standard amber ale - a very dry, toasted bread flavor dominates, with a hint of honey-like sweetness near the finish - drinkable, but nothing special.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2006
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a massive bubbly head. A bit excessive with the effervescence in my opinion. Light yeasty aroma. Flavor is also a bit yeasty. Also a touch of malt sweetness. Little, if any influence from the hops. I didn’t dislike this beer, but I wasn’t crazy about it either.
