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

Pours amber with a small head. Nose shows herbal and spicy hops, Belgian phenols, pear and soft clean malt. Flavours are very Belgian, lots of spicy notes and soft pear. Some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Body feels a bit watery.

rodenbach99 (3183) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
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.

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy bright golden colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of strong grassy hops, burnt bread and some citrus. Flavour of grassy hops, yeast, bready malts, grains, coriander, grapefruit and some weak metallic notes. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Finishes yeasty and grassy. Prominent bitterness, but overall an unclean beer.

330ml bottle from beer-city.be

Pours orange with a small foamy head. Aroma of musty fruits, hints of spices, yeast and malts. Taste is stingy, floral and yeasty with notes of spices and malts. Finish is smooth, crisp and slightly hoppy with some floral and fruity notes. Quite hoppy Belgian ale.

Great color. Bright golden hue. Aroma is nice but doesn’t jump out of the glass. Taste: A little on the bitter side with some exotic fruit. Good but not great.
