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.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Hazy orange body, fine white head. Extremely heavy aroma, sweet caramelly and nutty with bready and fruity tones. Sweet flavor, malty and hoppy with plenty of alcohol. Sticky palate.

JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Funky "wheatwine". Color of pure bee honey in a glass. Sweet alcoholic nose, honey. Thick, syrupy honey flavors totally dominant. Alcohol is harsh. Strong sipper gets teal-like aftertaste once the burn wears off.

Ungstrup (34660) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2004
An amber beer with a disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and alcohol. The flavor quite dry with hops and lots of alcohol. I like the concept Wheatwine.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2004

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2004
This tastes like burned raisins. Quite alcoholic and powerful. I could imagine the taste would improve espesially on this one, if kept for 5+ yers.

madsberg (11405) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2004
Bottled: Orange coloured. Not much head. Aroma of berries and fruit. Flaovur of alcahol. VERY much alcahol. Some sweetness is there and some spices. Ends on a bitternote, but again the alcahol totally dominates. This is a very one-dimensional beer IMO.

Pailhead (6426) - 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.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - OCT 4, 2004
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 that’s a goood thing, let us not forget! Has it’s 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!
