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.

rosenbergh (11946) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2008
330 ml bottle. Finland. Absolutely huge foamy head. Malty aroma. Caramel and warming alcohol flavour. Colder than advised.

Meilby (11791) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2011
Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast and fruity hops. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

3.2
shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 16, 2006
Bottle. Dry musty malt aroma. Reddish amber with gigantic head initially that collapses quickly. Sharp acidity hits the tongue first followed by light musty malt with a moderate hops finish. Light body but the mustiness linger quite a while after swallowing. Good but could use more body.

BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle - thanks Lou! Murky amber pour with a big foamy head. Malty, dark fruit, and some yeast. Almost a little like a dubbel. Good stuff!

hopscotch (11433) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 Bottle... Lightly hazy orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Malty, fruity aroma. Smells a bit like fruit punch. The flavor is a little too sweet. Malty and vinous with light bitterness... port wine. Medium-bodied and scouring with moderate carbonation. Finishes bone-dry and lightly bitter.

faroeviking (11336) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 19, 2011
Flöska. Nice clear golden amber brown colour, huge beige head, fairly well lasting. Aroma of toasted caramel and malt, bit fruit, bit sweetness, light spice. Ok mouthfeel, bit thin. Toasted caramel and malt in the flavour, alco sweet, quite some alcohol noticed in the finish along with a bit fruit. Mild bitterness. Too much alcohol in aroma and flavour

alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, 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.

3.4
DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. The pour was turbid ruby.coppery with great lacing and a 2-finger off-white head. The aroma was of tart fruit, mushroomy malts, some taint, and some definite sangria/fruit punch hints. The flavor was caramel malty, slightly dry and red winey, with some subdued nuts and spices as it warms. Complex palate that never really gets sweet, but seems to drift ti dryness as it warms. Nice yeasty fruity funk throughout.

3.8
allmyvinyl (11182) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Pours clear orange gold, big frothy white head. Aromas of yeast, sherbet, honey, strawberry jam. How can something be both dry and sweet? This is, and it works! Vinious qualities. High carbonation. Long finish. Lovely.

3.7
