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.

Poured a thin layer of head and quickly recedes. A nice dark hazy amber colour. Aromas of oranges, bananas and spices. Wheaty flavour, a hint of banana, yeast, and some citrus type bitterness. Goes down fairly smooth. Gives a tingly mouthfeel. Would love to try this one on tap!

Bottle version. Rich buckwheat character and earthy spices with a fairly clean finish. Decent buckwheat beer but I still prefer the Telenn Du.

Toujours aussi bonne qu’avant celle-ci... Ça manque un peu d’effervescence mais pour le reste, tout y est.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The wheres, whens and hows of first trying this one are somehow blurry but I remember liking it and I was able to come across a pack during the holidays of 2010. Poured a golden foggy body with nice lacing. The nose is intense and spicy with strong notes of buckwheat, caramel and coriander. The taste is also quite strong with a complex blend of spices, buckwheat and malts supported by a mild sharpness and sour-sweet flavours that finish in a medium vapory bitterness. Might get overwhelming so consider enjoying this one with moderation. Goes very well with salametti and creamy cheeses like the champsfleury, sauvagine and rouy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Je ne comprend pas pourquoi on classe cette bière dans les ambrées, ell ressemble à s’y méprendre à une blanche belge avec sa robe d’un jaune sale très trouble et mousse beige. Odeur de pain, épices et fruits. Au goût le coriandre est très présent, mais on est déçu par la minceur du liquide et le peu de longueur de la sensation en bouche; après quelques secondes, il ne reste qu’une légère amertume pour rappeler le passage de la bière.

I may be biased, as RJ has never been one of my favourite macro micros, but I don’t get the high scores for this beer. As several ratings have noted, this is a watery wit. The nose and flavour profile are there but it tastes watery as all hell. Were it not for that, it could be a decent witbier. As is, I’d prefer a Hoegaarden.

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...

Light spice aroma with a golden color. Spice continues on the tongue with a slight hop bite. Finished clean.

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.
