Pours a HUGE, white-tan head that has a lot of resin that persists.
Bright, spicy, citrus hop aroma is amazing.
Golden-yellow color similar to an IPA, actually.
Starts with a touch of sweetness, then moves into a wonderful blend of citrus hop and rye spice. Hop bitterness then makes a nice showing. Finish is a nice blend of malt, citrus hop, and rye. I love the initial flavor and how the malt transitions into this near the end.
Great mouthfeel. Not too carbonated, not too watery. Just perfect.
This is absolutely stunning. I could sit here smelling this all afternoon. If you are a fan of Cane & Ebel (my favorite), then this is for you. It allows a certain clarity of flavor that isn't found in Cane & Ebel. It's like a Cane & Ebel with edges that are just THAT much smoother (not that C&E isn't smooth).

A: Clear straw/amber and low/medium carbonation.
S: Malty with spicy rye note and nice hop aroma.
T: Strong malt yet dry with spicy rye bite and bold hop finish which strengthens as this warms.
M: Medium/full mouthfeel and lightly carbonated
O: One of my favorite Two Brothers brews. Even better than Cane & Ebel.

Clear copper color, average bubbling, but and awesome head and retention. Almost a finger thick for all 22oz.
The aroma is refreshing pale malts paired with light orange and lime zest hops. The rye adds a nice cleansing punch to the aroma.
This beer tastes like a hoppy, zesty Witbier. Fruity, lightly toasted malt and yeast flavors blend with citric zest and rye pop! This beer really hit the spot after a long Friday at work. Would love to see released as year round brew.

Pours a hazy yellow to orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, citrus hops and a small earthy yeastiness. In the taste, citrus hops, yet mellow and a green apple dryness. A small spice bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry rye and green apple dryness in the aftertaste. Almost saison like, with nice citrus hops upfront.

Pillar of Salt 2012
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Half Acre tulip.
A- pours a cloudy golden with a big 3" white head. Thick things and speckled lacing remains on the glass.
S- very different. Real big spicy, citrus aromas. Some sweetness also but that spicy, citrus is just really different.
T- citrus and sweet caramel followed by spicy bitterness.
M- medium body and carbonation. Creamy with a dry bitterness aftertaste.
O- had this on-tap a couple months ago at the Two Brothers 15th anniversary party and liked it a lot then, and still like it a lot. Different flavors and aromas, and just a really tasty beer.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a touch of haze to a orange body with a slow big carbonation and a meringue of egg cream that sticks to the glass in cobwebs with each sip.
S- The citrus hops aroma has a faint jammy quality to them with a fresh floral grapefruit skins hops and an interesting watermelon rind note to them in the finish.
T- The citrus hops are a bit softer than the nose and a soft earthy spice to them takes on more of a grapefruit zest note as it opens up. There is a pale malt note that starts to grow underneath as the beer opens.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz and the 68% ABV is well hidden.
O- The nice fresh hops flavor makes this very sessionable with a wonderful depth to the hops in the nose but a bit less in the taste.

This is part of the Retro Release series. Bringing back 15 beers from the past 15 years of operation. This is number 4 of 15.
A: Pours a slightly hazy amber/golden/orange color. A dense, two finger white head forms with excellent retention and lace. This is a looker.
S: The first thing that hits the nose is a perfume like floral aroma. Some fruity esters of apples and pears. Slightly slick and oily, but not bad. Peppery spice, bread and biscuit. Really enjoyable.
T: Follows the nose with a great floral, perfume like flavor. Zesty citrus and lemon. Other fruity esters that follow the nose. Peppery spice and biscuit from the rye. Maybe just a bit to slick and oily. A bit on the soapy side.
M/D: The body is on the lighter side of medium. Soft and fine carbonation. Smooth and creamy. Just a bit of soapy slickness, but not bad. Really easy and enjoyable to drink. The bomber will be gone in no time.
I love rye beers, and this is a good one. It is basically the opposite of the mega hopped Cane & Able, Founders Red Rye, or Hop Rod Rye. Much more delicate, and incredibly enjoyable. The soapiness almost becomes to much, but still something I highly recommend.
