Previously brewed at Anders.

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.

Zilverenmaan (110) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2017
Opaque, head not lasting. Fine, floral hops, distinctly malty. Aftertaste a little bitter and lingering. Not bad but lacks a bit of character to my taste. Mouthfeel and carbonation soft.

erickok (5757) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2017
Sourish golden malts, bit toasty. Saison style only in the unclean fermentation, but it doesnt have the deep developed character of a good Belgian Saison. The base recipe is good enough, but the brewing style is rushed. (33cl bottle from Prik&Tik Leuven)

Bosskie (853) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2016
Slightly opaque golden beer with a weak white head. Smell is fruity and sour citrus, with a hint of wood and apple sweetness. Touch of vanilla. Tasteis bitter sour with a hint of thick sweetness, caramel. Astringent finish, a bit too much. Very dry with a nice fizz. Crisp, nice.

Vignale (3597) - Malm, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2016
Flaska frn belgiuminabox. Disig, gyllengul med hgt skum. Relativt stiltypisk saison. Doft av jst, rter, jord, pplen och en rejl nve kryddor med nejlika i tten. Kryddig, lite oljig, ganska stor kropp och inte s frisk. Trevlig.

rumore (326) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 18, 2016
From the bottle. Pours golden with abundant white head. Lots of honey aroma coming up when warmer. Body is medium, carbonation typical of Saison yeast in the beginning, which is greatly reduced afterwards. Taste is moderately sweet, with some spicing, like pepper. Dry finish.

330ml bottle from Chez Marie, Ieper. Pours clear gold, large fluffy white head. Aroma is comforting bananery saison yeast. Taste is smooth, light, with some solid sweet saison flavours. A hint of cloves, quite soft and easy-going.

Maakun (4811) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2016
Bottle at home. Completely clear golden with white head thats quite fizzy but leaves some islands. Lots of spicy yeast op front with cloves and black pepper, sweet malts and sweet dried peach and apricot. Theres a light citrus touch with grapefruit and lemon, and soft grassy notes. Towards the finish some dusty herbs and light rubber. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Decent beer.
