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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Spicy aroma of clove and allspice. Caramel color, slightly cloudy with a short lasting head. Pleasant spicy taste with a trace of banana. Watery feel and spicy finish.
