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.

olio (8453) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 24, 2015
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a large frothy white head. Very floral and herbal aroma, slightly yeasty with citric fruity notes. Sweet toffee and ripe fruit on the flavor, some spicy kick which is strengthened by a very strong carbonation, maybe a bit too strong. Feels more like a Tripel than a Saison.

Alengrin (3861) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2015
"Saison style" beer since 2011, from just before the saison hype started, I guess. Thick, cobweb lacing, coarse, rocky and thick, off-white head over a pale golden blonde beer with greenish hue and fierce sparkling. Aroma of green apple, peach, dried orange peel, white bread, powder sugar, pineapple, banana, grass. Medium fruity onset, sour berries, apple peel and pineapple, bit minerally with tingling carbonation, dryish mouthfeel with some bready maltiness, ending in grassy and somewhat peppery hop bitterishness, lightly resiny, bit yeasty with some juicy maltiness coming through. A decent Belgian blonde, but if this is a saison, the same thing can be said of dozens of other Belgian blondes which do not present themselves as such.
