3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the supermarket. It pours a golden honey orange with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma is bready fruits & spices - delish. Med-full bodied with a sharp round carbonation. The taste is sweet, spicy buckwheat(soba) as well as fruity. This was my first soba beer and still my favorite. I’ll miss you Montreal I hope to be back soon...

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle. Orange color, frothy head, spice aroma and taste. A little lacing, but floaters, which caused me to put the appearance score down a bit. Good beer otherwise.

Spicy aroma of clove and allspice. Caramel color, slightly cloudy with a short lasting head. Pleasant spicy taste with a trace of banana. Watery feel and spicy finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Une des premières bières "différentes" que j’ai dégusté, la Coup de Grisou m’a ouvert sur un monde de saveurs incroyables et je n’ai jamais regardé derrière depuis. De couleur orangée aux reflets cuivrés, une jolie mousse blanche assez épaisse s’installe sur une bière très légèrement voilée. On peut bien sentir la levure typique à la brasserie, ainsi que des effluves épicées. En bouche, cette satanée levure est omniprésente, ce qui gâche un peu le tout. Sinon, la bière est bien goûteuse avec ses saveurs très fruitées (oranges) et épicées qui se marient très bien. Satisfaisante.

Some bar on tap: Pours light copper with white head. Aroma is spice and fruit, very much like a Belgian witbier. Taste is sweet, with banana and plenty of spice. I would not have guessed that this had different kinds of malts. It was easy drinking, but nothing phenomenal.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Much akin to the gent on the label of this brew, I held my head in abject horror and despair upon drinking this. Actually, it wasn’t that bad, just really disappointing, especially following the same brewery’s Death Valley DIPA, which fails miserably in style points but was more enjoyable nonetheless. Also, "Coup de Grisou" has something to do with mining explosions. Super cloudy light straw colour with a very foamy head. Light tangerine and wheat scents as well as some alcohol. Mildly sweet but overall too watery and too little carbonation to get much enjoyment out of it. Hardly any taste of buckwheat. Pass.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer was a real let down. It tasted like a watered down wit. It poured a light cloudy straw colour with a foamy head and low carbonation. It smelled good enough of citrus, wheat and coriander. It tasted much the same, but much weaker and I got none of the spicy buckwheat. It had such a water body that just falls flat in your mouth. Not impressed.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This buckwheat beer poured a nice amber colour with next to no head. Scents include light hop, yeast and light spice. First swig was very watery with flavours of malt and honey. Finish is mildly hoppy with a medium flavour.
