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.

Slightly hazy. Powerful flavor,lots of malt. Sugar and hops and alcohol in a very harmonic balance. Dried fruit in the aroma, flavor of christmass bread and toasted nuts. Refreshing and tempting.

Bottle at home. Bought it at the St Albans Beer festival four months ago and couldn’t wait any longer. Reddish gold, plentiful carbs and a big off-white head. A hint of strawberries adds to an earthy, yeasty, malty aroma. A pleasant metallic adage also identifiable in the aroma. Taste is bittersweet, doughy and alcoholic (but not too much so). Full creamy texture with the carbonation adds to the palette. Long complex finish. A proper treat. I’m surprised at how nice this is.

Bottle. Malty, caramel and spice aroma. Strong malt body with a touch of sweetness and a fine but not heavy handed hop bite.

First of eight brews a friend brought back from Europe. The pour results in a big fluffy-foam tanned head. The retention is very long and the colour is orange-amber. Lacing is uneven, but present. The aroma is mostly fruity with strong hop. Starts with a sweet taste and finishes with a hoppy bitterness. The aftertaste left is of red apples. Slight tart mouthfeel. Definitely worth a try... if you can put your hand on it.

Chudwick (3198) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - JUN 23, 2012
11.2oz bottle - pours a little murky but amber with dense tan head and decent lacing. Nose is fruit, alcohol, and brown sugar. Flavors adds caramel and butterscotch. ALLEZ LES BLEUS!!! VIVA ESPANA!!! Medium body with a dry finish. Very tasty and I will remember this one!

Sigmund (7457) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2012
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.5%. Beautiful clear amber to copper colour, large off-white head. Nice malty and slightly spicy aroma, with notes of caramel, brown sugar and dark dried fruits. The flavour is medium sweet, malty and spicy with distinct notes of caramel, also brown sugar and raisins. Moderate hops in the finish. Warming mouthfeel, very enjoyable.

Thick head. Strong carbonation which keeps the beer light and fresh. Full bodied. Complex flavours. Brioche, toffee apple, earthy, champagne finish. I want some more please.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2012 Il se sent léger dans la bouche mais il a un gôut fort et complexe. Un peu de malt, un peu d’houblon, lègèrement sucré avec un goût faible d’alcool avec le chaleur qui l’accompagne. Excellent.

À l’oeil : De couleur rousse-ambrée, la Gavroche crée une mousse explosive et persistante dans le verre. Une belle effervescence habille les côtés du verre. Au nez : Odeur de céréales et d’alcool qui annoncent bien les saveurs qui vont suivre. Au goût : Malt caramélisé, alcool et une belle amertume pour le style : La Gavroche est très bonne bière forte en saveurs !
