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.

BlackHaddock (5747) - Shropshire, - OCT 5, 2012
33cl Bottle (funny shaped thing) best before 17 Mar 2014: poured into a Duvel glass on 28th Sep 2012. Huge, huge head on this pour: good job i was prepared and used the Duvel glass: looked good actually, the snowy white mountain of foam filled the glass before I could get all the beer out the bottle. I had the sediment laden remains later. The colour of the body was a copper/orange/deep amber and clear. Mixed bag in the aromas: once the smells could get through the head I found some malty molasses and spicy hop notes, add floral and nut esters with maybe a cherry/almond tart floating in the middle. The taste seemed more ’yeasty’ than the smell would indicate: again it was a mixture of flavours (like the nose), the alcohol playing its part too. originally on the sweet side the hops kicked in mid-sip and the finish was boardering on bitter. Interesting and well worth finding, yet another French beer I’ve enjoyed.

Excalibur123 (341) - Soria, SPAIN - APR 20, 2016
Vierte ámbar oscuro ligeramente turbio con abundante cabeza de espuma beige que perdura largo rato en la copa, aromas a caramelo, frutos secos, licor y azúcar Candy; en boca entrada media, maltosa con ligero y equilibrado amargor, cuerpo medio pleno y carbónico medio, largo pos gusto, maltoso y dulce, el alcohol está bien integrado, similar a estilos belgas, balanceada hacia la malta.

rondphoto (3618) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 19, 2016
bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Aroma of malt and yeast. Hazy rich amber brown color, beige head, waves of lace. Taste is malt with a little sour mixed in that moves through a carbonated swallow to light hops and a hint of fruit. Pretty strong, and pretty heavy, but I don’t detect the alcohol.

RaijinSen (307) - POLAND - MAR 11, 2016
Pours clear, mahogany colour with a decent head. Aroma of caramel, ripe apples and some spices. Malty in the taste with caramel and fruits (strawberries), quite sweet with a short, earthly bitterness and spicy finish. Quite good.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle in LA. INtensely malty, some caramel, but not sweet. finishes medium dry, very clean, I was expecting something more like a saison but the yeast has a very clean finish. Big malty beer - pretty good.

jmgreenuk (6955) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle from somewhere in France. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is yeast, sweet malt. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich smooth fruity, light alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.
