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.

33cl bottle from beer52.com. A pale straw colour with medium carbonation and a billowing white head; aroma of Belgian yeast and a touch of coriander; dry, biscuity champagne-like, taste; with some citrus to finish.

Taste of Belgian yeast fills this which sort of puts me off. Sort of a boring golden ale. Lots of fruits. Apples and yeast.

bonkiedeaap (379) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is hazy golden colored and pours a large white head, with a lot of carbonation. The aroma is a nice palate of hops, citrus fruits, grass, spring flowers and some yeast. The taste medium bodied and light sweet, with nice tones from the citrus fruits. This changes into a medium bitterness and dryness, with a lot of hops. Very refreshing though. The finish is medium bitter, dry and very refreshing.

No idea where the bottle came from. Pours golden with a large 2 finger head...even when poured well! Aroma of lemon, orange, pine, banana, wheat....Initial malty taste, light grains, then grass, hay, then wheat, lemon, orange, banana...then some pine and a wee kick on the abv at the end. Good!

TtV (183) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Hazy light yellow with a huge white top that stays. Citrus aromas are most prominent when the beer reaches the nose, but hops can be recognized too. When tasted an immediate dry, bitterness kicks in with a sour touch. The bitterness fades somewhat and switches sides with sourness. Not bad.

Svesse (6735) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2015
(Draught at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels, 22 Oct 2014) Hazy golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of bread, peaches and lots of grass. Malty, slightly fruity taste with bread, grass, hints of citrus and a certain grassy/citric bitterness. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Fresh and tasty with lots of grassy hops. Quite nice.

Bottle from my Dutch Secret Santa, thanks! Pours with a massive white head, leaving lacing all down the sides of my glass. A very murky looking golden yellow beer. A very spicy and peppery nose, slight banana and bubblegum smell. Lemon zest is present on the tail end of the aroma. Taste is light on mouthfeel. Spicy upfront, a bit of barnyard funk, slight sweetness of hay. Very nice Saison. I love saison and this was a welcome treat.
