Allocation is a super drinkable Belgian Session Ale. Medium in body and amber hued with ample handfuls of wheat malt to keep the beer’s finish light and dry. Mild phenolic notes from the Trappist yeast offer up mild hints of spiciness and banana.

On tap at the brewery in Portsmouth, NH. Pours a lightly clouded, mostly clear orange-copper colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast with some clove spice and phenols, a lightly sweetened wheat malt, a touch of banana, and a hint of pepper. Flavor is similar. Thinner Belgian yeast flavors with clove spice and phenols, a light banana, and a touch of pepper. Watery feeling wheats before this finishes slightly dry, smooth, and clean with a light yeast spice and hint of hopping. Medium length aftertaste following a thinner body and a medium-light carbonation. Overall, this is basically exactly what they were going for; a sessionable Belgian Ale. Thinner malts, but smooth and clean with some decent Belgian yeast notes. Not bad, just not very exciting.

Full amber body, thin head. Crisp Belgian Pilsen malt notes, perhaps some wheat and a prick of frisky phenols. Easy phenolic flavors, most prominently, clove. Somewhat dryish finish and with some notable spice to it. Indeed a highly sessionable Belgified complement to their famously drinkable ESB.
