Pilgrim’s Dole is a barleywine-style ale made with fifty percent wheat malt, or what we at New Holland call a wheatwine. Pilgrim’s Dole blends warming and slightly sweet flavors with a unique caramelized character. It would be an excellent accent to nutty dishes, fruit crisps or creme brulee.
During the 14th century, the term “Pilgrim’s Dole” described the rations of bread and ale given to nourish wayfarers on their holy pilgrimage. At New Holland, Pilgrim’s Dole is brewed for the cultural explorer of today. It is a rewarding discovery on the road to enlightenment.
Whether in a snifter or from your rucksack, Pilgrim’s Dole will enhance any experience and is certain to incite wanderlust and to fuel adventure.

BuckeyeBoy (5966) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2013
22oz bottle with sceen printing older vintage thanks to toby. Pours out copper topped with a small sand head. Aroma of pit fruit caramel malts toffee and a little hop. Taste is as the aroma with caramel malts leading the way some pit fruit still hanging on. A little of the hop bitterness on the end. This one was still holding up very well.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 6, 2013
22oz bottle. Clear amber with a small head. Aroma is lots of fruity wheat and yeast esters, toffee and some alcohol. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, fruity and peppery yeast and a fairly strong alcohol heat. Medium body with soft carbonation. This one smells really nice but the flavor is a bit of a let down.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
22oz bottle, with an orange printed-on label. Probably several years old. Clear red-orange color. Minimal khaki head. Couple fine dots of lace. No hints of oxidization, that’s good.. Very smooth and easy drinking. No bite or burn in the taste. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, just a light warmth. Caramel malt, light earthy hop, lightly spicy. Bigger body, some smooth, lighter kind of crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Some tropical fruity hop. Solid wheat wine. Holds up well.

Clear dark amber with a large bubbled head cover and light streaks of lace. Taste is full caramel malt with candied fruit. At the finish, alcohol and dark dried fruit becomes apparent and cuts the sweetness for a good balance. Strong, appealing, but only one at a time! Recommended.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a medium beige head. The aroma is oak and vanilla. Thin mouthfeel with light roasted malt and nice oak finish. A good barey wine from New Holland.

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Dark amber pour with a white head. The aroma is very sweet with some grain, orange citrus, peaches, candy sugar and assorted spices. The flavor is very similar and equally complex. There is a lot of malty sweetness as well as some wheat and big, juicy orange citrus notes. There is also some peppery spice as well as some yeast and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

11 oz draft. Reddish amber with nearly no head/lacing. Nose is fruit, vanilla, oak, bourbon. Flavor vanilla, dark cherry, caramel. Warming finish with a moderate bitterness. Interesting take on a barley wine. Good overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
