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

mjs (6459) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2016
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at tiong’s tasting, thanks, 20160109) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had hops and Belgian style yeast. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, hops, Belgian style yeast, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A decent hop-forward Belgian style ale.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 12, 2016
330ml bottle - thanks to someone in the posse at tiongs!
Sweetish malts, some herbal hops, and a belgian yeast fingerprint in the aroma. Taste identical. So cookie-cutter, I feel like I’ve had this a hundred times. Smooth palate, a bit dull and flat. Drinkable, but boring.

biirusaikou (2566) - - JAN 11, 2016
Bottle from Bieres Cultes. Average hoppiness with floral and citrus notes, earthy touch of pepper and herbs, drinks more like a belgian pale ale maybe, decent brew but probably not on par with Belgian stuff.

tricksta_p (3538) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma is floral, grass, spicy yeast, a bit perfumed, fruity, malt, tangerine, hops. Flavour is light sweet and moderate to medium bitter. Medium bodied. Pretty good, well-balanced floral yeasty hoppy beer.

Beerheart65 (1408) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2015
Advent Calendar beer No2. Pale yellow, bit hazy, sparkling, creamy head is off-white and sticks nicely giving lacing. Very Ipa’ish aroma, exotically fruity wit mango, pineapple, tangerine, caramel malt under this, nice. Fizzy, light, bitter, herbal notes, dry but fruity to long finish. Nice, fresh and refreshing. Probably really does work as aperitif. Enjoyed in Chimay glass... next time I’ll use tulip to keep the beautiful aroma lively and easier to catch.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2015
A golden ale with a thick frothy lacing white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, light tropical fruits, OK. In mouth, biscuit malt with citrusy floral hops, a bit of Pledge cleaner, a bit thin bodied, OK. Bottle from Le Bon Marché, April 2015.
