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

Bottle 330ml (Saveur)
Clear golden color, small white head. Belgian yeasty, strong grassy hoppy aroma. Slightly earthy. Light to medium-bodied. Strong grassy hoppyness, fruity, a bit alcoholic and earthy flavor. White peppery too. A bit strange for a De Proef belgian ale.

Not much going on here I’m afraid. I’m just getting "lager" in the aroma. Taste is smooth, slightly bitter and palate is quite silky. Not unpleasant but "provocateur" is a bit of an exageration.....

At a tasting, thanks Tom, sallish creamy head, hazy golden to light orange colour, ysty saison aroma with some citrus and flower, soapy bitterness, some fruitiness and a touch of malt in the back. Drinkable but not too exciting.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Noam’s office. Thanks Tom L. Clear golden with a white head. Pleasant floral and citric aroma, hoppy and yeasty, with some fruitiness and light spiciness. Flavor has a bit of sweetness, yeast, fruitiness, some hops, mild spicy notes and a moderately bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Decent.
