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.

Kittenbieer (151) - LYON, FRANCE - NOV 1, 2016
Dégustée avec mon cher Appiantiqua dans des petits verres Duvel 18cl: belle robe orangée-cuivrée avec une mousse blanche peu persistante et une forte carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes des céréales avec de légères pointes acidulées(citron).La bouche nous amène sur les mêmes saveurs des bonnes bières de garde mais avec en plus de fines notes épicées.La finale nous laisse sur une petite amertume plaisante et rafraîchissante.Une variante des bières de garde bien agréable!une bonne ambrée pas trop sucrée pour une fois!

appiantiqua (151) - Lyon, FRANCE - NOV 1, 2016
Dégustée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre Duvel 18cl. Température de début 7 à 8°. Très belle robe cuivrée surmontée d’une mousse blanche peu persistante. Nez caractéristique des bières de garde : arômes de céréales(froment) et notes d’agrumes(citron). Le goût offre un bouquet de saveur épicées et houblonnées: en se réchauffant un peu on remarque un bon retour des céréales. La finale est agréable et de bonne longueur sur l’amertume et une petite touche d’alcool qui reste malgré tout rafraîchissante. Une bonne bière du Nord. 14,5/20

PlutonowyMan (694) - 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.

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