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.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2004
Bottle: Poured a medium brown color ale with generous head that goes away too quickly. Aroma is quite complex with definitely some buckwheat and a few spices (probably some coriander mix with something else) completed with Cheval Blanc usual yeast. Taste is quite complex with the roasted buckwheat hitting you right at the beginning and then coriander mixing quite nicely with the yeast. I waited a while until I could pick-up a fresh sample before rating this since Ive noticed that it doesnt aged very well.

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..

Soft, sweet velvety wheat aroma. Pleasant to my nose . Hazy with nice crown . Flavour full front, with typical (?) for buckwheat flavour, sweet dry plum with intense wheat soft feel. Medium bodied. Interesting hoppy finish. Warming alcohol. Complex and well rounded . Pleasant surprise!

bottle. pours a hazy golden colour, looks great in my hacker weizen glass. lots of yeast particles floating around. As per the decription, this beer is quite spicy which I found to be quite satisfying. There are also some nice fruit notes. A fantastic pint for a beautiful summer day like today.

wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2004
Tasted in Ottawa. Obtained from Depanne Plus. 650ml bottle. Here we go.... Appearance is rusty golden yellow, with very small head and a very cloudy appearance. Have to admit, had to strain this bugger. Upon viewing the sediment in the bottle, I found just too many chunky yeast bits.... Aroma is relatively plain, and watery. Taste is only slightly more deep. Taste is remiscent of a belgium wit, but very watered down with little or nor flavour. Oh Well....

Crockett (1113) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2004
Great picture of a Meteor screaming toward a man on Earth. Pours deep hazy gold. Busy carb, head is off white fizzy and short lived. Nose is malty, soap, spice (coriander) with honey accents. Some sediment. Good mouthfeel with prickly carb. Green fruity flavours. Yeasty and orange notes. Dry salty finish for sure. Hollow. Not blowing me away for style.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2004
Orange body and quickly thinning head. Enticing fruit and corriander aroma. Dry and salty finish is the strongest attribute. Corriander up front. Hints of orange zest in the middle. A rare beer in that the flavour is perfectly matched to the promise of the aroma.

Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2004
650ml bottle. A hazy, amber-orange beer that pours with a white, medium-sized head that mostly fades. Light aroma presents bready malts, herbal and grassy hops, and coriander and orange peel spices. Light-to-medium body with a lively carbonation that contributes to the grainy texture. Cereal grains dominate the malt character and ensure that the use of buckwheat is no gimmick. Crisp, spicy, and somewhat sharp, with a grassy and herbal hoppiness lending support. Interesting enough to warrant sampling, but its not something that I would seek out again.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Bottle pours a cloudy peach color, mediocre milkish like head, attractive lacing, and with tons of suspended yeasty bits floating about. Aroma is very citrusy, orange peel and curacao, for a German Wheat. Notes of wheat and yeast as well, but not as dominant as the citrus. Forwardly wheatish, full and somewhat chewy, through to the finish I get a yeasty (and slightly citrusy) flavor. This seems more of a Belgian Wit crossed with an American Wheat. Good body and mouthfeel, enjoyable all around. Thanks goes out to Rastacouere for the trade!
