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

allmyvinyl (3186) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2014
330ml bottle from Great Grog. Pours clear amber, thick white head. Aromas are surprisingly light, citrus and pine, some yeast. Taste is balanced, but I expected more oomph! Perhaps the bar was set to high with the Cuvee d’Oscar thing, which was amazing. This is just good, in comparison.

Tomy63 (190) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - APR 8, 2014
style entre une Belgian ale et une IPA, couleur or profond reflets orangés, nez sur la levure, l’orange, le pamplemousse et des notes épicées. C’est mieux en bouche, moins marqué par la levure des Belgian Ales, plus marqué par les agrumes (pamplemousse et orange surtout), légèrement acidulée et amère, les 60 IBU ne se sentent pas. Bonne puissance, facile et désaltérante. Longueur moyenne. Au final un peu plus proche de la belge que de l’lPA. Une bière qui est devenu en quelques années un classique français.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2010
From bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Thanks Jean !
Appearance : Clear amber with a small head.
Aroma : Lots of malt, resinous and piny with notes of mangos.
Taste : Malty with passion fruits. Nice citrusy hops. Finish is a bit woody, resinous and bitter.
Overall : Didn’t feel very "English" to me from what I can remember. Interesting beer.

Scopey (6726) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle at Het Oude Schooltje. It pours golden yellow, with a thick white head and moderate carbonation. The nose is American cream soda, hay, bread, grass, grapefruit, lime, orange and lemon. The taste is full of tropical fruit: mango, pineapple, orange, lemon and lime, as well as pine, grass and hay, with a satisfyingly bitter finish. A fresh and crisp hoppy belgian ale.

Botted 330ml. -Courtesy of Marko (thanks!), shared with heavy and him.
Slight hazy orange/golden coloured, small white head, lemony fruity nose. Lemony hoppy, slight caramel and agrumey taste with mild bitter finish. Nice one.
