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.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Good offering. Amber in color, slightly hazy,fine head,long lasting. Aroma more yeasty/bready/malty.Tasted less assertive in fruit character than some Belgian versions and with a touch of earthiness I assume from the hops.

bierkoning (13806) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2003
Red copper color, big frothy head. Apple aroma. Very good lacing, in fact prickly. Medium bodied. Malty flavor with alcohol, just a hint of smokiness, some licorice, apple and grapes. Slightly bitter aftertaste. A bit vinous. Not bad, especially for a French beer.

DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2003
Malt and bread aroma, copper with a medium sized creamy, off white head. Taste is of strong malt. Full bodied, alcohol is apparent. Pretty good.

Nate (4296) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2003
Toffee, bit sweet, musty, bit of hops. Copper brown clear with off-white foamy lacing head. Medium silky-watery body and medium carb. Musty malt at start, not sweet. Good dryness, bitterness in finish. Light bitter after.

A decnet beer that mimics many others. Smells standard and tastes like the bastard child of better beers.

3.3
DarkMagus (560) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Clear amber color with minimal white head. Sweet bready, malty, aroma with hints of dried fruits (dates, raisins, cherries). Strong acidic fruit flavors with malt and a bit of bitterness in the finish. Decently carbonated, fairly soft mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff.

kramer (6975) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2007
12 oz bottle, Stateline Liquors. Pours a slightly hazy reddish amber body under a large fizzy and foamy beige head. Lots of very fine visible carbonation. The aroma is quite similar to a Flemish Sour, showing some fruity malt and some light tart apple notes. A little alcohol, farmhouse funk, and sweet malt. The flavor shows dry farmhouse funk with some light malt and yeastiness. Some apparent alcohol showing on the finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with too much fizzy carbonation. You can actually hear the carbonation as the beer hits the front of the tongue with every sip. Overall, this was OK, but not a stand-out for the style.

3.3
Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Guzzled a little bit upon opening. Color is amber with a very big off white head. Aroma is mildly sweet, with caramel, slightly earthy. Taste has a nice sweetness to it, followed by light alcohol, caramel, hay character, with a light bitterness at the end. Body is a little fizzy.

3.3
reakt (951) - 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.
