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

2012-10-30, draught at Le Super Coin, Paris, 7-5-7-4-15=38
Cloudy light amber color; medium sized compact head. Nice aroma, fruity but delicate, light aroma of yellow jam, some animal, musk character too. The mouthfeel is light and drier than expected; delicate toffee flavor with a well balanced fruity hopping, and just dome more dry resins in the final.
Elegant beer.

2012-09-06, draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 7-4-7-5-15=38
Hazy amber color, with generous creamy head. Interesting to taste it side-to-side with the Psychedelia, this one evidently reveals a more complex body structure, more malt, some residual sweetness, still a good hopping level, fruity hops, but less hop character (like the pungent and sweaty mix of the Psychedelia).
Very good beer.

2011-09-06, draught at La Capsule, Lille, 7-5-7-4-15=38
Hazy amber color, bright, with medium sized compact head. Toffee aroma, with mild, citrusy hops. Good malt and toffee flavor, with moderate residual sweetness, delicate; indeed there is some similarity with the Mikkeller Single Hop ales brewed at the same facility; pleasant hopping, well balanced, elegant, never aggressive, with light resins and fruitiness.
Very nice, also for it’s rare harmony.
