COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Agent Provocateur is a strongly hopped beer - a hybrid of an IPA and a Belgian golden ale. Bright, colourful notes of exotic fruits (pineapple, grapefruit and lime) and spices give way to a solid, long bitter finish. This beer is an excellent aperitif and goes perfectly with spicy food. Brewed by Craig Allan @ De Proef

Idiosynkrasie (4557) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 19, 2015
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, orangey, faint golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Rather expressionless, citrusy and minimally grassy-herbal hoppy aroma, mayhap a touch of lime and lemongrass with goodwill. Taste is dry, slightly grassy and fruity hoppy, notes of green apple, apple parings, minimally bready, sweet-ish caramel malty basis. Slightly monotonous and anaemic. Provokes if anything indifference, given that this oxymoronic conclusion is allowed.

VDuquerroux (516) - Airvault, FRANCE - APR 12, 2015
On tap, 10cL. @Festibiere Jenlain 2015. An orange beer ; few bubbles ; medium white creamy head ; good lacing. Spicy aroma, biscuit, roast, dark fruits, citrus, resin. Dry bittersweet ; good balance. Medium body, thin silky texture, smooth, dry fruity bitter finish. Overall, a good hoppy beer ; well balanced.

Bottle at home from alesela
hazy dense gold with herbal skunked nose and offwhite lacing. Papery, lively carbonation, bitter, dry astringent, slightly fruity but overall not particularly pleasant.

teddybeer (2511) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 16, 2015
Murky orangish color with a white head with good duration. Aroma has notes of floral hops with some yeasty hints. Flavor is slightly bittery at the beggining with light sweetness and fruity notes on palate. Mild bitterness in the final with a light dry mouthfeel.

murran (302) - - MAR 5, 2015
Pours a light amber body with a medium head. Pleasent hoppy aroma. Flat and rather boring taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bewyder (189) - FRANCE - MAR 2, 2015
Très bonne bière, avec un bel équilibre entre amertume d’une IPA et rondeur d’une bonne belge, tient bien en bouche, fruité complexe très plaisant. Bouteille 33cl achetée chez Chop’in, Paris, France, bue le 28/02/2015.
