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.....

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, biscuit, some slight orange, husk, slight yeasty, peppery notes. Taste was a mix of orange, pine, pear, some sweet orange peel, touch of yeast, husk, finishing slightly bitter.

Duracell (8) - Montreal, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015 does not count
33cL bottle in a pint glass at "Chez Marie Madeleine" crêperie in Paris. Firm hoppy character with medium high bitterness, pine and marmelade flavours, and mild Belgian yeast tones. Nose is disappointing, only showing some grain. Overall a decent beer I would happily drink again!

a nice, hoppy beer... but nothing exceptional wonderful colour and nice head... if only the aroma could show enough complexity...

Idiosynkrasie (4807) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 19, 2015
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, orangey, faint golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Rather expressionless, citrusy and minimally grassy-herbal hoppy aroma, mayhap a touch of lime and lemongrass with goodwill. Taste is dry, slightly grassy and fruity hoppy, notes of green apple, apple parings, minimally bready, sweet-ish caramel malty basis. Slightly monotonous and anaemic. Provokes if anything indifference, given that this oxymoronic conclusion is allowed.

VDuquerroux (608) - Airvault, FRANCE - APR 12, 2015
On tap, 10cL. @Festibiere Jenlain 2015. An orange beer ; few bubbles ; medium white creamy head ; good lacing. Spicy aroma, biscuit, roast, dark fruits, citrus, resin. Dry bittersweet ; good balance. Medium body, thin silky texture, smooth, dry fruity bitter finish. Overall, a good hoppy beer ; well balanced.

Beersiveknown (3832) - NORTHERN IRELAND - APR 7, 2015
Bottle at home from alesela
hazy dense gold with herbal skunked nose and offwhite lacing. Papery, lively carbonation, bitter, dry astringent, slightly fruity but overall not particularly pleasant.

teddybeer (2703) - Paris, FRANCE - MAR 16, 2015
Murky orangish color with a white head with good duration. Aroma has notes of floral hops with some yeasty hints. Flavor is slightly bittery at the beggining with light sweetness and fruity notes on palate. Mild bitterness in the final with a light dry mouthfeel.

Lilja (2087) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2015
Flaska från Saveur biere. Smak och doft av citrus, granskott, humle, jäst, med toner av ananas och grapefrukt. Torr, lagom sötma, fruktig och frisk, beska med smak av granskott och grapefrukt.

murran (332) - - MAR 5, 2015
Pours a light amber body with a medium head. Pleasent hoppy aroma. Flat and rather boring taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
