COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Frothmeister (787) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
341ml bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with some sediment floaters, and a two finger off-white head. The nose is spice, light bread crust, light alcohol, yeast, banana, and a smell that makes me think raw pumpkin. Light bodied, and spicy up front, light fruity notes, yeast, with a finish that tastes like ginger snaps, and light bitterness. This is genuinely good stuff. Sort of comes across as Unibroue light.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 A interesting beer to drink as it is full of taste. The label on the bottle is also quite cool looking.

Bottle (341 ml). Slightly hazy golden/orange with light particles floating, small white head and little to no lacing. Aroma of buckwheat, spices, grains and coriander. Taste is moderately sweet with spices (mainly coriander), grains and buckwheat (we can really taste this flavor and its not one that Ive tried often in a beer). Medium body. Average carbonation. Interesting Specialty Grain beer here with a really distinct aroma/flavor of buckwheat. Not very complex or really drinkable, but not bad at all.

Slepkov (46) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
Pours slighly hazy honey colour with a thick, lathered, and prolonged head. On the nose is yeast and gentle spice with a little citrus and grains of paradise. Balanced sweetness in the mouth, with a little honey and subtle mineral notes in the finish. Understated and very drinkable. Good hop character throughout backing everything up. Im certain I would not have guessed this is a speciality grain brew. V. Good.

BreWedge (531) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - APR 26, 2013
341 ml bottle. Pours a mildly hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aromas are banana, clove, yeast, and pepper. Taste is banana, mild spice (pepper), and a nicely balanced but subtle hop bitterness. Very smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, and a very short finish. This is a very sessionable and enjoyable beer.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2013
Couleur ambre-orange, elle est presque claire mais avec quelques petites particules en suspension. Effervescence rare mais prsente. Puissantes effluves dpices et de bl ; le sarrasin est l galement, avec du pain et des petits fruits. Saveurs puissantes, aux raisins secs et au bl, au coriandre et aux canneberges. On peroit mme du malt grill un peu plus tard. Une fois la forte saveur principale passe, on reste avec le sarrasin et les pices attendues. Une des meilleures de RJ, et galement lune des plus originales et des mieux russies au Qubec. Elle nest pas exempte de dfauts, mais elle demeure un mini-exploit en bouteille, ronde et moelleuse quelle est.

Cette bire a une robe ambr orang compltement voile. Une belle mousse blanche slve lorsquon la verse. Au nez, des armes dagrumes, doranges, de levure et de sucre sont prsents. En bouche, ds la premire gorge on remarque la prsence prdominante des pices. Trs intressant. Des got de zeste doranges sajoutent au sarrasin et la coriandre. Il sagit l dune bire qui coule bien, et dont le got nest pas trop puissant. 5% dalcool, cette bire tire son pingle du jeu, mme sil ne sagit pas dun incontournable. Bonne valeur qualit-prix. Je vous recommande de la goter. Cheers!

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours an opaque orange with a resilient white head. Smell is spicy - peppery. Taste is spicy, semi-sweet crepe, some yeast. Some cake. Spicy hops in the finish. Lingering fresh cereal (wheat?) flavor. Medium body, very soft mouthfeel. Excellent, wasnt expecting much, but got a great product here!
