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.

rami_pl (3010) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 7, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 Butelka, warka do 01-09-17. Olbrzymia, prawie biala piana, ladna, srednio szybko opadajaca, zostawiajaca fajnie nierowna, pofaldowana warstwe, brudzi szklo. Samo piwo prawie przejrzyste, opalizujace, bursztynowo-rubinowe. Aromat w pierwszym odczuciu - kwasne jablka. ale takie fajne, owocowe. Pozniej dochodza mocne karmelowe nuty, troche chleba, generalnie w slodowa strone. NIeco tez suszonych owocow, nieco przyprawowosci i nieco tej nutki charakterystycznej dla BdG (choc wcale nie tak duzo). w smaku - kwasno-slodkie, kwasnosc zanika wraz ze wzrostem temperatury. prawie bez goryczki, za to ze szczypiacym lekko w jezyk, wysokim wysyceniem. alkohol przyzwoicie ukryty. Inne od tych kilku probowanych przeze mnie. Dosc malo ciala. I faktycznie niezle. i przez kwaskowata nute ciekawe, choc smaczniejsze jak dla mnie (i bardziej w stylu) w sumie po ogrzaniu

PapaVillum (925) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2015
75 cl, flaske, 8.5 % ABV, BB 05/03/17, fødselsdagsgave fra Kirsten og Roberto, 22. marts 2015. Klar kobberfarvet Bière de Garde med flot offwhite skumkrone på 3 cm med meget fine bobler. Svinder efter en halv snes minutter til kant og overflade. Aroma af karamelmalt, træ og nødder. Dybere aroma af cognac-noter og lidt ubestemmelig frugt. Smagen er bittersød med overvægt på det bitre. Smagen er anderledes og med en rar alkoholvarme. Medium bitter og let sødme. Kroppen er mellem til solid fyldig med fin tilpasset karbonering på et medium niveau. Konsistensen er olieret. Afslutningen er bitter med ganske let sødme og slutter næsten små-besk af. Dette er, hvad jeg husker, den bedste og mest karakterfulde franske øl, jeg til dato har smagt.

alexsdad06 (9924) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle sampled at home. Pours a hazy copper amber color with a large, rocky off white head. The aroma and flavor have bready malts, caramel, some citrus, light funk, mild peppery spice, a hint of metallic character, ok to try but I wouldn’t seek this out.

ANZUShophunter (399) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2015
From bottle in a tulip glass. Poured a bit quickly and had to wait for head to settle. Nice copper hue. Excellent depth of flavours, almost presents as a self-contained boilermaker thanks to ABV. A very enjoyable experience; too bad the French restaurant where I sampled it has closed down!

Hazy copper colour with a persistent, slightly soapy head. Herbal and malty aroma. A nice balance between the sweet and the savoury. Very mildly bitter. Well balanced.
