Our cow's milk Biervesa cheese has an earthy, fruity flavor and a creamy, soft texture. It is bathed daily in rich ale with floral aromas and a taste of apricot during its maturing period to create a golden colored rind and is reminiscent of old world monastic European washed-rind cheeses. Washing the outside of a cheese as it ripens keeps the rind from cracking and exposing the interior. It promotes the growth of pinkish-orange Brevibacterium linens, which produces the meaty, pungent flavors. The rich, earthy Ale we use contributes to the unique flavors in our Biervesa cheese. It pairs well with Chardonnay, light red wines, port and of course beers and ales.
