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

Swaroga (2023) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 13, 2012
33cl bottle. Filtered, has golden/orange liquid with medium thick white head. Nose : fresh aromas of esters and tart malt, It’s also very aromatic with citron, lime and pine notes of hops. Sip : low to medium body with creamy texture. Medium carbonation. Little sweet with malty body and bitter and dry citrus hops ending. In fact the ending isn’t long but does stay for a while. Not bad.

@ Brewberry, Paris. I’m not quite sure that this is100% Belgian Ale, as there are several strong IPA notes. Pours a light amber liquid with white head and mature, hoppy aroma. Taste is yeasty, medium sweet but at the back of your tongue you can feel the unique bitter, veggie, herb-like IPA-taste. Really nice experiment with the two styles.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - MAY 20, 2012
Supposed to be a Belgian Ale? It pours like a Pils, smells like an IPA and taste like a Lager. No any link to the Belgian style. Even the Brewer is from Scotland, and the Brewery is located in France. So yes, this is as "provoking" as expected. Fair enough, not a bog deal; as long as the beer is good. And this is good! Something similar to 77 Lager made by Brewdog. Cheers

courtesy of Laurent Mousson - hazy golden-orange beer with a little white foam left; aroma of peaches, oranges and cream; fresh hop impression; medium-bodied and pretty tasty; fairly bitter and with long hoppy fruity tones in the finish - dry, refreshing and deeply pleasant

Benzai (12760) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2012
33cl bottle shared Dutchdrebus. Hazy cloudy yellow to light orange color, small to medium white head that fairly quickly becomes a decent white lacing. Smell malts, hops, lightly yeasty. Taste malts, hops, bitter, but pretty watery. Doesn’t taste like 6,5%ABV. Medium carbo, low to medium body. Expected this to better.
