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

Enjoyed this at the Bière Academy in Paris, France. Nice amber color. Aroma has hints of citrus and hops with a subdued malt. Nice bitter finish with good mouth feel. An excellent effort from France and hope to be able to purchase in US someday.

Bouteille de 330ml. Achetée et bue à Paris, été 2013. Bière blonde dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez de malt pils, de miel, de fleurs et de houblon noble. Une bouche qui ressemble à une lager avec des notes de malt pils, de miel, de houblon. Une finale amère agréable rend cette bière passablement digeste et facile à boire.

Head: off-white, small, frothy, poor retention. Colour: amber, cloudy. Aroma: citrus, pine-apple, some caramel and a light boiled vegetable note. Taste: again some malt, dry, refreshing and slightly bitter. Had higher expectations from a 6.5abv ale.

Aroma is quite light with some apricot and yeasty notes. Flavour has apricot, some orange and spices. Palate is too high on CO2. A spicy Belgian Ale.
