Beer notes: Red ale beer refermented in the bottle. Gavroche is a character in Victor Hugo’s 19th century novel entitled “Les Miserables”. He is a rebellious yet always generous little urchin living by his wits on the streets of Paris. Gavroche is a strong, red beer in which the deep malt flavour and brisk hoppiness are very well balanced. The whole is accentuated by fruity flavours derived from a special top-fermenting yeast. This is a rare French example of an ale refermented in the bottle. Gavroche must be served with care, leaving behind the fine yeast sediments.
