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

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.

DSG (9317) - Tel Aviv, - APR 11, 2014
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.

style entre une Belgian ale et une IPA, couleur or profond reflets orangés, nez sur la levure, l’orange, le pamplemousse et des notes épicées. C’est mieux en bouche, moins marqué par la levure des Belgian Ales, plus marqué par les agrumes (pamplemousse et orange surtout), légèrement acidulée et amère, les 60 IBU ne se sentent pas. Bonne puissance, facile et désaltérante. Longueur moyenne. Au final un peu plus proche de la belge que de l’lPA. Une bière qui est devenu en quelques années un classique français.

Bottle (330 ml). Beautiful slightly hazy golden with a medium mostly lasting white head and some lacing. Aroma is of fruity hops along Belgian yeast, some spices and herbal notes. Taste is slightly sweet with grapefruits, spices, a good malt backbone, herbal notes and a moderate bitter finish. Medium body. Spot on carbonation. Dry finish. Very good Belgian Ale. Drinkable and refreshing. Tasty! Just the right amount of spices and nice herbal presence.
