Hell’s Bells: Lost Abbey Track #3

The Lost Abbey releases Track #3 of their on going Ultimate Box Set this Saturday. The beer, shown briefly in this video, is a blend of two barrels of Mellow Yellow, and Phunky Duck (a base beer in the blend that becomes Duck Duck Gooze.

Liner Notes

The beer is a blend of some our our favorite components. The clean lactic notes from Mellow Yellow combined with the heavier earthy twang we get from the Phunky Duck barrels. It’s a non fruited blond sour which if you take into account our successes with Isabelle, Cable Car and Duck Duck ought to be enough to have people lining up like it’s Black Friday in March.

The Album Art and Text

The majestic bell tower is all that remains of this Gothic cathedral. Somehow, it escaped the ravages of wars and continues to weather the centuries of neglect. Shrouded in a fog of mystical wonder, the Devil maintains it for his personal playground. At dusk, Lucifer emerges to dance between the shadows of a silvering moon as he returns to the bell tower launching a cadence for the newly departed. Gong… Gong… Gong echoes the bell in a Satanic trance as a chorus of bats take flight from the tower like thunder consuming the silence. For centuries the nearby townspeople have tried to unravel the mysteries of the bell tower only being left to conclude it is haunted. For the wind they cannot make a Bell Toll like that. But the Devil can and nightly he conducts a Requiem for the souls he has acquired. Shhh… Listen quietly! You can almost hear it now…
