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.

Golden colourd, hazy. Acidic lightly estery nose. Refreshing and fruity with somewhat soapy mouthfeel. Well balanced. This is just my type of beer, and I really liked it!

Big white head on a golden body. Spicy Belgian-rich aroma. Strong up front malty sweet, quickly turning clean and easy drinking, with mildly sour aftertaste.

Hazy golden ale with a creamy white head. Peppery celeri salt in aroma, coriander and honey. In mouth, creamy mouthfeel, good malt with coriander and ginger. A smooth one. Delicious with a marinated porkchop.

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 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.

hopdog (11629) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with boutip (thanks!). Poured a medium to darker and hazy golden color with a large to very large sized white head. Aromas of stonger spices, lemons, and light bananas. Tastes of spices (not as strong as the aroma), citrus, bananas and light wheat. The tastes on the softer side compared to the aromas. Refreshing. This is a style of beer I’m growing to appreciate more and more.

Sammy (11242) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2004
decent yeast, lace in a light coloured haze. Refreshing though drying. Light mouthfeel. Above average carbonation. Taste that buckwheat. Easy drink, no complaints. Average beer. Malt, slightly sweet countered by corriander, pepper biting spice..

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)
