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.

Tessic (1140) - Brantford, Ontario, - MAY 18, 2014
This buckwheat beer poured a nice amber colour with next to no head. Scents include light hop, yeast and light spice. First swig was very watery with flavours of malt and honey. Finish is mildly hoppy with a medium flavour.

Apparence: D?une couleur jaune dore opaque, elle est coiffe d?une bonne mousse d?une bonne dure. Effervescence difficile valuer, mais semble moyenne avec des bulles de petite taille. Armes: Au nez, ce sont des armes de malt et lgrement pic (coriandre). Saveurs: En bouche, cest un corps moyen. Au got, cest des flaveurs malt avec des notes pices. Finale moyenne, avec une effervescence moyenne et aucune amertume. Commentaires: Bire intressante, comparable une pale ale de qualit. La levure belge influence dfinitivement le produit final de belle faon. Toutefois, je perois difficilement linfluence du sarrasin dans cette bire. Fiche technique Style: Bire de sarrasin Format: 750 ml Taux d?alcool : 5 % Temprature: 6 - 8C

Robe orange, fine mousse. Au nez on a des agrumes. En bouche, on remarque quil sagit dune ambre pice, avec ces notes de coriandre qui domine et dautres part des agrumes. Cest une bire assez douce, qui a peu de corps, et laisse la sensation dune bire blanche.

Dun orang un peu trouble. Odeur pice. Got de coriandre, dagrumes, de poivre, de clou de girofle. Une pointe damertume qui s efface frachement. Une sorte de blanche dguise. Bien agrable. Un bon classique qubcois.

AleRider78 (1000) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
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.

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.
