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

A weird barley wine! Amber color with a cherry smell. Flavor is sweet and somewhat sour. Malt is well balanced and alcohol is well hidden. Finishes smooth and sweet. Decent.

LearninBeer (500) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2016
22oz bottle no date, old style with orange with orange silk screen, think around 2007. The aroma is caramel and bread. Pours a cloudy copper/brown, with mostly diminishing light brown head, very good lacing, see some floaties in it. The taste is sweet with a little bitter. The body is full, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very Good, probably aged too long because of the floaties.

In my beerfest stupor, I entertained by juvenile brain by referring to this beer as Pilgrims Hole. Im hilarious, thats why. When I read the deScriptions line about drinking this from a rucksack I made it into fucksack for even more fun. Enough about my immaturity. Lets talk about how this beer packs buttery chocolate, subtle fruit, butterscotch, caramel, toasted malt, and tons of booze sugar into the flavor. Lets talk about how even it is for being so rich. Interestingly, the "Wheatwine" styles tend to ask us to look back on the time when times were hard and livestock were nervous. Still, if Pilgrims Dole were the type of ration available back then, it would make life on the frontier tolerable. You know, before dying of dysentery with only your teenage spouse and ten children to mourn you.

In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with vinous notes, dark fruits, molasses, alcohol warmth, light licorice, very solid and smooth.
