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

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.....

Vili (45) - FINLAND - DEC 22, 2014
75 cl bottle. Hazy golden pour with thin white foamy head. Aromas of bread and fresh spruce with side note of yeast. Lots of bitterness and a hint of sweetness. Some fruits and yeast in the long aftertaste. Nice combination and interesting setup.

MrHangover (2765) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle @ THT December. Pours a clear golden beer with a small, white head on top. Aroma is slightly hoppy and medium yeasty. Quite boring. Flavor is rather boring as well, though there’s nothing wrong with it. Just another Belgian ale without any depth or complexity.
