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.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle. Amber brown pour, with a ton of head (overflowed out of my Unibroue tulip, actually). Fruity aromas: raisin, apple, pear. Flavor is sweet, with some caramel notes and malts. Smooth and velvet-like on the palate. Recommended.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours a gorgeous copper with a big fluffy white head. Aroma has rust, lots of yeast characteristics, ester, lemon zest, pretty rural with the farmhouse yeast. Taste is quite malty, caramel, hayish, rural and a lot of yeast characteristics, esters, lime. Pretty decent.

Nice medium copper color. Little nose or head on this sample. The taste is sweet and malty, notes of caramel, but no noticeable fruit.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Despite, or perhaps correlated with, this bottle being a gusher, this beer looked great. Big ass lively even creamy head with a crystal clear reddish orange hued body. Became a bit cloudy when I pushed the pouring thing. Toasty biscuity malt nose. Subtle. A bit creamy. A hint of fruit. Not awe inspiring, but not bad. A full lively mouth. Small even bubbles. The flavors are pretty much in step with the nose. Big toasty biscuit malt. Bread. A good bit of fruit. Some alcohol sneaks out. A bit of tannic stuff going on. The style seems to support less alcohol usually, so it’s a it odd here. Significant hops, floral. A bit of acidity. Not a huge fan, but not a terrible beer either. Interesting at least.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy copper with a small layer of foam and some minimal lace. Aroma of pennies, diacetyl, and amber malt. Tastes oddly sweet - almost sickeningly so at first, but then the hops kick in and attempt to balance the finish. Lots of diacetyl, some alcohol. Thin creamy body, low carb. Not a fan.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle served in a tulip. The active yeast urges the foam out of the bottle even before I had a chance to put it in the glass. Pours murky amber-brown with a short head that stays on top as a thin film. Medium sweet aroma of multiple dark fruits, toffee, soy, and bread. The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma suggests. Medium body, thick-oily texture, fizzy carbonation, and a somewhat fruity, moderately dry finish.

kevd193213 (991) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 8, 2008
BOTM bottle. Reddish copper pour with a huge fizzy cream head. Aroma of barnyard malt and grains. Taste of hops with an oaky finish.
