Het recept voor KoekeDam werd voor het eerst ontwikkeld in 2011. Aanleiding was de creatie van een bier ter gelegenheid van de Turnhout 2012 festiviteiten. Het origineel recept bevatte Amarillo- hop. Maar omdat deze anno 2012 heel schaars was, werd geopteerd voor Cascade hop. Deze laatste geeft een citrus aroma. Dit aangepast recept werd gebruikt voor de Turnhoutse Patriot. Omdat we in 2014 nog een dame mistte in onze "grote straat" en nog geen ruitensymbool hadden in ons gamma, lag de keuze voor handen: KoekeDam.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2015
(Bottled@Stadin Panimobaari, sampled 2015-04-17) Murky golden with a huge head. Very grainy, lightly malty nose with Belgian yeastiness and acidity. Grassy-hoppy flavor with graininess, slight yeastiness and acidic citrus. Yeast accents the fruity American hops. Dry mouthfeel, medium body, quite refreshing, but slightly too acidic. A reasonably fresh, dry and bitter saison.
