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.

Un arôme de fleur de houblon et d’épice. Une belle robe orange brumeuse. Au goût une légère amertume mais surtout de l’agrume, un peu épicé, un peu acide, pas vraiment de sucre, un peu mince, très rafraîchissant. Bonne bière d’été.

Nice red-brown color. Strong buckwheat aroma. In some bottles the yeast is too present. A good beer overall.

toffsbury (114) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2011
Cloudy light brown pour. Incredibly spicy smell... Nice and malty and smooth and floral. It taste like a mouthful of lilies. Really delicious... It is like drinking an extract of stargazer lily. If you take a big mouthful of this, you will feel the spiciness in you chest. Delicious.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Bottled shared by Kinz at the 15th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 7/16/11. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized creamy offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Huge spice notes in the aroma. The taste is strong clove, strong coriander and citrus. Medium bodied. Way too overspiced. I think someone said this was like sucking on potpourri. I’d agree with that.
