Second, you will have heard, in our interview, where LaBelle Brewing owner and founder Dan Peregrin explained the story behind Peregrination (Belgian Tripel, 10.5% ABV).
Not only is it a clever play on his last name, but it’s also a word that means ‘To embark on a great journey.’ And, as he tells it, if you are not ready to consume a 10.5% ABV Belgian Tripel and jump in with both feet, you are going to be taking quite the journey in a few moments.
Just to drive it home, the artwork further includes a falconer with a peregrine falcon.
Enough on that, the beer. And a pretty solid Belgian Tripel it is. Crystal clear and beautifully golden in color with the correct notes of bubble gum, wet sock, fruity breakfast cereal, and maybe a little bit of lemon.
The rest of the beer follow suit with correct and wonderfully funky Belgian notes that blend harmoniously with touches of lemon, lime, orange, circus peanut, maybe a little bit of popcorn and sourdough thrown into the mix on the back end.
It may be odd to think of a brewery smack dab in the wilds of Hendry County to have a Belgian Tripel as one of their canned year-round releases, but that confusion dissipates once you actually try the beer. It’s a fantastic beer, and well worth the journey to LaBelle to pick some up.
And, of course, the journey you undertake after consumption.
