Default Ballast Point tongue buckler

pretty tasty stuff. I tried a sample at the brew mart today and ended up walking out with a few bombers. I dunno if I would want all 22oz in one sitting but still really good.

Weenie!

Ballast Point is good stuff. Never had the Tongue Buckler, but it sounds excellent! I have had 3 others by BP, and was impressed.

ballast point i hands down my favorite brewery. their year around brews are good but their specialty brews are where they shine.

this one is really good but the flavor is really 'in your face' . I'd want to change it up after a bottle.

Ballast Point is great. Tongue Buckler is a really good red. Huge hop profile in that one. You're right about their specialty beers, too. So underrated. They're probably my second favorite brewery in SD now.

That reminds me, I've gotta go there to grab some more caps, I'm running low. I'll probably take a taste of the buckler when I'm there.

Stopped in last week and tried the Tongue Buckler. Delicious, hoppy, malty, and had a wonderful kick. Quite nice.

Still, I have found a new love in the new Navigator Doppelbock. Dear God, that stuff is AMBROSIA! I picked up a bomber of that and finished it in three days. Amazing, crisp, tasty, smooth.

Well, a half gallon anyways. I picked up another of the Tongue Buckler today. Pricey, but good.
