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

johnarktor (139) - FRANCE - NOV 19, 2016
Aroma: bread, dough, leaves, spice, hay, floral, banana (a little) ; Appearance: pale, golden, cloudy, white foam, medium to big head ; Taste: light sweetness, lightly bitter, very lightly sour ; Palate: full body, slick feel, lively, somewhat bitter long finish. You need to drink it at room temperature, otherwise it is useless. Refreshing, and very interesting. Good belgian-like innovation.

corkyrory66 (2059) - BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2016
Blonde de 6,5 % abv, avec malt d’orge et de froment, plusieurs levures, brassée chez de Proef en Belgique par cet écossais vivant en Picardie, mais qui a des installations personnelles sur place. Mon exemplaire pouvait encore patienter tranquillement pendant un an et demi, mais il en a été décidé autrement … Couleur abricot orangé, à la clarté nette, très jolie. Bulles fines en colonnes droites, vives. Mousse qui tombe en un nappage fin de surface. Arômes de malt grillé, houblon fin, pointe de genièvre, aubépine, lierre. 1ère bouche croustillante, sur du malt pils, houblon de style saaz, un peu de bois vierge. Arrière-bouche bien maltée, assez longue. 2ème à l’ensemble malt/houblon vert/fruits blancs assez intéressant. Arrière-bouche très équilibrée, longue. 3ème avec du caractère, du houblon, une pointe d’épice. Arrière-bouche agréable, longue, à l’amertume vive. Longueur qui développe à la fois amertume et malt, dans un bel ensemble. Jambes assez huileuses. Levure douce, fine, belle ligne. Alcool très efficace pour son niveau, il soutient l’ensemble. Finale très honorable. CONCLUSION : Allan a fait du beau travail avec des ingrédients assez standards, dans un esprit bien belge, mais recouvrant aussi quelques caractères d’une ipa. Une blonde mixte donc, ou européenne si on passe de l’Ecosse (opposée au brexit) par la Belgique jusqu’à la France.
