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.

Pours a clouded ruby brown with minimal tan head. Nose is sugary, cherry, with a touch of wood. Flavor is smooth with a tuch of wood somewhere in there and a slight bit of caramelized sugar. Feel is great. Nice effervescence and bubbly on the tongue. Drinkable, yes. Quite good and worth going to...maybe worth going to again.

StoutHead (962) - DENMARK - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours an unclear red color. Aroma of malt and straw. Taste is of malt, caramel, bread, yeast, nuts, spices, fruits and alcohol. It’s a bit like an ale but a lot more tangy. Full body and so much carbonation it exploded out of the bottle. Didn’t like it much.

annunz123 (957) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 18, 2012
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.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2009
Bouteille de 750 ml. Arômes de malt caramel, légère touche de levure épicée. Très belle robe cuivrée et mousse abondante, effervescence active. Très bien maltée, le caramel est accompagné d’une légère touche épicée (la levure ?). L’effervescence active aide à alléger le corps. Finale assez sèche, où l’alcool se pointe. Intéressant.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2007
Bottle @ Quinns. Brandy coloured with a malty off white head. Roasted malt nose. Taste of malt, nuts and caramel. Simple, but pleasant and drinkable.

MikeKeller (939) - Kemi, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2009
Bottle. Orange beer with a tall foamy head. Nice caramelly and hoppy aroma. Sweetish flavor with some nice hoppy bitterness. Medium body. Feels fizzy in the mouth.

bunget (929) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
750ml bottle. Clear orange body, big yellow head with good retention, but almost no lacing. Aroma of grains, yeast, toffee, dried fruits. Taste is sweet and boozy: caramel, apricot and apple jam, yeast, floral hops. Medium oily body.

dandeman (928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Évaluation no. 104 - Juillet 2011. Au nez, de légers houblons et de subtils caramels. La couleur est cuivrée et floue. La mousse est abondante et très persistante. L’attaque est assez houblonnée avec des notes légères de caramel. Combinaison alcool et acidité très défini. Rappelle les lambics.

PapaVillum (928) - 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.

budedou (917) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - AUG 26, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2016 - Grain and bready sweet malts. Bit hazy copper with a rich beige head. Slight sour bitterness, caramel and bready malts, booze and fruity finish. Dry in the end and actually quite nice
