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.

odinstyr (778) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Pours a hazy copper-red with a thick off-white head. Smells of basement, hay, caramel. Taste is mildly sweet and mildly bitter - high carbonation.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2011
Bière sur lie légèrement trouble, presque claire, couleur de cuivre sous un abondant col blanc et aérien. Des arômes capiteux de fruits confits, de céréales grillées et d’alcool. Franche amertûme et une pointe d’acidité. Fine effervescence constante. Finale légèrement amère.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Dark amber color, with huge off white foamy head. Aroma is very malty, slightly sweet, creamy, with caramel and cherry notes, a hint of chocolate. Flavor is malty and sweet, carbonated, caramel, and a bit of sourness. Palate could be a bit thicker.

canary dog (760) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Aroma is complex and enticing. The presentation is a knockout: deep and cloudy ruddiness with a frothy foamy head. Nice sticky lacing. Gives the appearance of an old-world classic, as it demands respect. Taste is yeasty and fruity. There is considerable depth, and the beer plays well to a hearty sloshing in the mouth as it reveals creaminess, something toasted, and some boozy alcohol. Reminds me of a fine Trappist trippel.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2004
Great beer with an intens amber color and a fine beige creamy head. Good complex malty nose with outspoken malty aroma’s. In the nose you can notice hints of nuts, wood, rice crispy’s faint touch of apricot and honey. All the aroma’s are well in balance with a clear hoppyness and a faint touch of mint. The taste is very fine, complex and medium boddied. The mouthfeel is refreshing and malty, it brings some mintyness in the taste and the afthertaste is fine and elegant. The alcohol is outstandingly integrated is this top brew. It is Frensh, and it is damn good.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - APR 5, 2007
Amber, hazy with a nice head and lace. Aroma of toasted toffee like malts, some funky yeast, hint of hops, raisons and others. Medium bodied, lively carbonation makes it seem lighter, slides down the throat with velvet like ease. Malty flavor with alot of yeast elements, an earthy/rustic brew, balanced and clean, no sign of 8.5%, would not call it terribly complex but a well made brew for sure.

swanmann (751) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 21, 2009
The bottle poured tawny red with fluffy tan head, into a snifter. Fair retention and good lacing, the aroma has nice caramel and yeasty, bread crusty notes. I like the balance between alcohol, intense caramel and hoppy acidity. And it opens up nicely with a bit of warmth. One of my favorite French brews to date.

[bottle] Reddish amber in color, almost clear. Spicy, alcoholic malt aroma. Sweet fruit flavors balance well with alcohol and some slight acidic complexity.
