COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coup de Grisou was introduced on the market in October 1996. It is a copper-coloured Ale-type beer, containing 5% alcohol, refermented in bottle. With a potent, explosive taste, this beer has a powerful aroma of buckwheat and coriander giving it an unbelievable density. Bottle refermentation imparts a yeast-enriched flavour. Serve between 6° and 8° C, preferably in a hybrid glass.

Hazy golden-amber. Persistent tan head. Aroma of buckwheat, coriander, caramel, bubble gum, & fruit (banana?). Medium feel. Earthy, lightly acidic flavour of buckwheat, coriander & fruit. Perhaps a little phenolic.

Hazy golden colour with a thick head. Very spicy (mainly coriander) aroma and taste. Very good.

radiomgb (2227) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
Copper/orange in colour with some small floaties. Aroma of fruit, yeast, malts, hops, and citrus. Flavour was cirtusy, hoppy and somewhat musty. Finishes with a medium hop bitterness.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2003
Golden orange colour, with a LOT of sediment in the bottle. Aroma of fruit and spice dissipates quickly, as does the head. A bit of an interesting flavour up front, but it doesn’t linger. The aftertaste vanishes quickly. I’m wondering if this bottle survived the trip intact. (my friend picked it up for me in June)

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
Very spicy, a mix of spice that create a flavor explosion in the moutch when you first drink it. The main spice is coriander. Then you get the Wheaty flavor fallowed by the citrus finish. Not bad !

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2003 Appealing bouquet coming from a dark gold beverage. As it enters the mouth, you feel a mix of spices, definitely coriander, some citrus too that stays in the mouth for some time (you'd wish longer) Overall a very honest light summer beer.

I found the label amusing: a man with an apparently massive headache is clutching his head while a small boulder hurtles towards him. The beer was delicious and reminiscent of a german wheat, yet in a malty way. Nice floral bouquet.

CapFlu (4476) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2003
(Bottle) HUGE chunks of sediment - filter-guy must have been on a pee break - Very gross really! Pours a thin, instantly dissipating white head and a orange-amber cloudy body. Wheat nose with floral undertones. Mellow flavours of malt and citrus. Hoppy, acidic finish.

Good beer, nice wheat aroma and full wheaty flavor. Light brown iun color with a nice head. Slightly citrusy or sweet. nice strong finish.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2002
Nice white but not very special. Love the aroma though with citrus, sweet malts and coconut. Cloudy amber colour, white frothy head, nice lace. Light citrus, light sweet, bit thin, not very strong flavors. Long lasting finish, little hoppy.
