4.4/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: medium amber with red-orange tint; fat head of wonderful foam

S: herbal hops, some earthy/woodsy notes

T: woodsy, some sharp spices; tangy yeast, muted sweetness, bittering hoppiness but also some very wine-like characteristics

M: chalky, dry, medium-bodied but very crisp and fresh

O: this is almost like the red ale of farmhouse ales - a delight for a summer's day on the farm, but with some depth and heart

For December, my beer club decided to have us try a bottle of Gavroche French Red Ale. I usually have some idea of how a beer will taste prior to opening the bottle but I usually try to avoid having a preconceived notion and go in with an open mind. I'm glad I avoided thinking about what this beer was supposed to taste like because if I had it would have been off by plenty.

The bottle came looking different than in its BA picture with a cork and metal stay. The first pour was fairly carbonated as the bottle condition I'm sure had a lot to do with that. Overall it got better as I got further into the beer and ended very nicely.

A - Amber, 2 finger head

S - Floral

T - Caramel and fruit notes

M - Pleasant and sudsy

O - Good brew!
