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.

22 oz. bottle with a complicated flip top that should have come with a manual. After some quality time with a screwdriver and a corkscrew, this pours cloudy reddish brown with a generous head. Caramel, candy sugar, and maybe a little apple in the aroma. Taste starts with bread a caramel. Finish has a little smoke, more hop bitterness than I expected, and some alcohol. Nice.

PlutonowyMan (500) - POLAND - OCT 13, 2016
Barwa miedziana z czerwonawymi refleksami, klarowna, Od góry na piwie tworzy si? bia?a, sztywna piana. Jest trwa?a i pozostawia ogromne w?sy po ka?dym ?yku. Aromat s?odowy, nieco wytrawny, jest chleb ?ytni lekko kwaskowy i zakurzona betonowa posadzka, jednak s?odowo?? jest tutaj dominuj?ca. W smaku s?odowo?? jest przygaszona nutami wytrawnymi, jest wi?cej estrów owocowych, s? przyprawy, np. pieprz. Charakter Gavroche’a w porównanie z zapachem, zmieni? si? w delikatniejszy, nieco kwa?ny. Goryczka to tylko 20 IBU, jednak jest wyra?niejsza ni? mog?oby si? wydawa? sucha, pestkowa. Wysokie wysycenie nadaje piwu rze?ko?ci. Alkohol idealnie schowany.

Bottle from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn. Pours amber with a lasting white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, caramel. A little over medium sweet, well balanced with bitterness. Medium bodied, sticky texture. Finish is a bit tangy.

Pretty decent beer. Loads of sweet caramel with a classic twist of yeast fruit. Good but not mind blowing.
