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.

Le liquide est orangé et voilée. Un mince col de mousse flotte à sa surface. Les odeurs sont, très prononcées, d’agrume, de coriandre et d’épices. C’est bucolique et, je ne saurais reconnaître, en tout humilité, la touche de sarrasin. Goût est assez bien équilibré, agençant de belle façon les propriétés qui se retrouvent dans les arômes. Est-ce que c’est trop prononcé? Peut-être, mais c’est efficace. Elle est plutôt mince en bouche, quoiqu’elle sort bien son épingle du jeu avec son amertume subtile.(Lot 294-280714-0014) (385-041212)

341ml bottle. Brassy colour, moderate, long lived white head, lots of floaties. Aroma has strong, savory buckwheat, coriander and a little soapy. Lots of buckwheat in the flavour, with a little more coriander than I would prefer but still balanced. Body was lighter than I would have expected. Overall, this one exceeded expectations.

Pours pale and hazy straw with a minimal white head. The aroma is predominantly white pepper and coriander, with some lemon and yeast. The taste is also peppery and crisp - kind of unique - with a mild finish. Could be fuller-bodied. Interesting beer.

Smells a little wheaty, taste has some coriander. I thought the buckwheat would add something more interesting but it doesn’t. Goes well with the indian food I’m having. Pours blond with decent lacing. Pretty clear. Bottle from a d-pan.

Bière jaune-orange de 5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat sucré et enivrant. Un peu brouillé au versement malgré un beau col. Elle possède un bon goût de sarrasin, très riche et présente en bouche. Léger goût citronné et un léger goût d’épice (coriandre). Excellente !!!

That spicy taste reminds me of Unibroues beers. Really enjoyable and easily drinkable beer. Especially good with spicy meat. Finish is abrupt.

Hazy orange pour with a white head. Aroma is floral, bubble gum, a little bit of spice on the nose. Flavor is super thin and watery, a few floral notes. Some slight spiciness. This beer would be better served with a bit more malt/grain character.
