COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pilgrimís Dole is a barleywine-style ale made with fifty percent wheat malt, or what we at New Holland call a wheatwine. Pilgrimís 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 ďPilgrimís DoleĒ described the rations of bread and ale given to nourish wayfarers on their holy pilgrimage. At New Holland, Pilgrimís 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, Pilgrimís Dole will enhance any experience and is certain to incite wanderlust and to fuel adventure.

Pailhead (5398) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2005 Bottle: Aroma is very malty and fruity. Kind of has a banana bread aroma. Slight alcohol nose. Pours a very dark amber with lots of sediment floating around. Decent tan head that lasts a minute or so. Very matly. Has that banana bread flavor too as well as a big caramel finish. Only a slight alcohol flavor. Caramel aftertaste. Slight hops in the finish, but I really mean slight.

Bottle. Pours a syrupy orange-brown with a touch of haze. Big off-white head that lasts forever. Nice lacing. Aroma is Malty sweet. Hints of wheat are noticable. Taste is Instantly sweet, and then a hit of bitter. Characters of the wheat fade in and out. A touch harsh to me, not bad, but just a little rough. Perhaps time will help.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Pours a dark amber with a huge head. Aroma is sweet and close to a white wine. Flavor is lightly sweet and clean with some hop bitterness/spice at the end. Palate is smooth and light. Alcohol is extremely hidden.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Gorgeous magenta hue, a deep violet, with a solid ring of beige foam reigning atop. Aroma is full of grapes, alcohol, spice, orange zest, cherries, brandy, leather, cognac, a heady crowd to run with, yeah, but a generous mix for those who favor abundance of flavor. Taste is smooth, yet still a bit spikey, with a brash, bold fruity flavor clanging in, reminding me, really, of Aventinus, more than anything else, and thatís a goood thing, let us not forget! Has itís own character, fruity, spicy, yet stil maintains a connection to the weizen feel to in the taste, as well. No quaffer here, this is a truly luxurious brew. Wish I had a magnum, and all the best people and the very best time, to chime in some happy celebration, with this most wondrous brew!

A wheatwine.An old bottle so youíre thinking tons of character.Rusty in color with a sweet scent of syrup.Not bad.Kindaí had the aroma of an overripe fruit basket from Christmas.Flavors of burnt toffee but again almost a mustiness and as it warmed up inthe warm summer night i became more intriqued wuth this.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 2, 2004
Beautiful amber/gold with fine white head. Sweet banana, cherry, malt, carmel, bright aromas. Medium to heavy weight with a lingering finish. Carmel, chocolate, banana, plum, slight smoke, burnt carmel, and on and on and on. Wow, the guy who gave me this says itís a 10yr old version which means I need to buy me some for 2014!

On tap at their brew pub. A bit of kick to it. Smooth flavor and some interesting side notes. Lace and head where pretty average

jsquire (3679) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2004
On tap at the í04 Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Festival. My rating may be effected by this being the last beer of the day after tons of really hoppy beers. Light amber color with a whispy off-white head. Dark fruit (plum) nose. There is a noticable sourness to this beer, with Begian sugar and sour cherries. Tangy beer with a lemon twinge in the finish. This was a barley wine?

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2004 Bottle pours reddish amber, fizzly off-white head, nice lacing, with very subtle carbonation. † Aroma was of pears, apples, figs, raisins (especially as it warms). † Definitely sweet too. † Flavor wasnít as sweet as the aroma, but had maltiness and a large bite of hops at the end, almost too much. † A bit rough at the finish... over hopped me thinks. † Overall, not bad, but probably would get better with age. † 10% ABV was well hidden too. † Thanks goes out to batkins for the trade!
