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

mile (3206) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2011
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish fruity aroma, fruity citrus hoppyness and some caramel. Body is medium, malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, fruitiness with light citrus hoppyness, some caramel. Finish is average, malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, fruitiness with some citrus hoppyness and caramel. Too much malty sweetness and too little hoppyness for me.

ogivlado (6079) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 18, 2011
Botted 330ml. -Courtesy of Marko (thanks!), shared with heavy and him.
Slight hazy orange/golden coloured, small white head, lemony fruity nose. Lemony hoppy, slight caramel and agrumey taste with mild bitter finish. Nice one.

Marko (4108) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 17, 2011
First missed this at the Abbaye des Saveurs in Lille, because I couldn’t carry anymore really, but thankfully found it later at Cave a Bulles in Paris. Shared with the usual suspects. POured a murky peach colour with a slightly off white head that went away slowly. Sweet aromatic hoppy nose, lime, some yeastiness, ok enough. Light soft agrumey taste, not much bitterness. Smooth, a bit light and overall nice!

Scopey (7884) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle at Het Oude Schooltje. It pours golden yellow, with a thick white head and moderate carbonation. The nose is American cream soda, hay, bread, grass, grapefruit, lime, orange and lemon. The taste is full of tropical fruit: mango, pineapple, orange, lemon and lime, as well as pine, grass and hay, with a satisfyingly bitter finish. A fresh and crisp hoppy belgian ale.

sebletitje (7028) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2011
Bouteille 33cl venant de l’esprit écossais de Craig Allan de La Capsule @ Lille. Couleur orangée, col épais blanc. Au nez, je suis de suite pris par cet arôme houblonné laissant une présence citronnée et de pamplemousse. En bouche, on a une bière qui tend à épouser le style américain IPA tout en conservant ce style belge. Palais mélange les goût surtout au niveau des houblons qui donnent une fine amertume tout en agrémentant la dégustation de notes de citron, pamplemousse avec une fine couche d’épice avec une légère présence herbeuse. Le tout reste assez sec en bouche avec un fini d’où ressort un malt léger.

dnstone (2272) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Hazed golden-orange in color with a great head. Lightly sweet and dry-hoppy aroma and taste. A nice lighter beer with flavor, particularly hops
