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

Draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris. Lighly hazy golden, small head. Sugary nose with gooseberry and mango. Very sweet with clean mouthfeel and medium body. Clean with the sort of generic, half lifeless de Proef mouthfeel. A thin layer of tropical fruits. Mid bitter finish.

czar (4443) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
on tap at la fine mousse, paris. relatively clear light golden with a decent white head, some retention. breadied malts, cereals, fruitiness - apricots, some belgiumness. definitely something wrong with this brew - as per the managers’ sayings too - don’t understand why it was still on menu... average to soft carbonation, light to medium body - oily, short lightly herbal finish. where are the hops? will re-rate for sure...

Bottle from La Caves a Bulles. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are yeast, grass, fruits, malt and hops. Sweet and bitter finish.

Quack-Duck (7944) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2012
bottle from Saveur-Biere. Hazy golden colour, small but persistant white head. Lovely hop aroma. Medium-bodied, elegant malt flavours provide a good base for the huge amount of aromatic hops that add a resiny-fruity character.

cagou007 (328) - FRANCE - DEC 7, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Pours a pale amber color with a medium white head. Nose is mainly citrus and spices. Aromas are citrus (lemon), bread, malts, fruits and herbal hops. A well balanced ale dominated by a hoppy bitterness.

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - DEC 4, 2012
Tasted on tap @Ma Che, Roma, on 29/10/2012. Pours of a perfectly clear amber color with lovely head. Aroma is medium, quite interesting, definitely belgium yeast, slightly sweet. Taste is amazing, high carbonation, very intense, classic notes of a pale ale upfront, then following by a wave of caramel sweetness, raisins and dark fruits - awesome. Aftertaste is a heck bitter and slightly caramely. To sum up, very good and interesting beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JoeMcPhee (8466) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle thanks to fiulijn. Pale golden-amber pour with a thin white head. The nose has a little bit of light citrus and some soft fruitiness and a little bit of pale malt. Some soft malt sweetness and a touch of herbal bitterness. Moderate sort of honeyed sweetness along with a bit of light stone fruit character. Lovely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

erickok (3629) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 7, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013 Served in amazing glass, very classy. With the yeast pours a hazy amber with stable off white head. Fresh aroma with citrus notes and fresh yeast. Quite active carbonation but a lovely dry base. Good amount of bitterness and with that flavour. A classic blond but perfectly hopped. Good stuff. (Bottle at l’Academie de la Biere)

rauchbierlover (596) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2012
Nice brew. Pale amber body with a persistent white head. Aroma is like an IPA: citrus, grapefruits, some passion fruit. Taste is a solid combination of sweetness and bitterness. Ends dry and bitter. I didn’t expect something that good from France
