This cheese imitates the soft, slightly tart cheeses made by Trappist monks in Europe. It has a similar overall balance as geuze making in a perfect compliment.
This cheese has a thin paper and plastic wrapping that is best peeled or cut off.
|Aroma: low butter and milk, low pear and candied lemon, very low pleasant acidity, low breadiness (gives overall impression of cream cheese bagel or qusitoes)|
|Flavor: medium rich cream with notes of butter, low pear and orange esters, low tartness, low bitter sharpness, medium-low mustiness, finish is semi-sweet, low bitterness and sour orange aftertaste|
|Texture: a sticky and slightly dry creaminess that is just spreadable|
|Pairing: The cheese is a bit more acidic when paired with the geuze and slightly less bitter especially in the aftertaste, the acidity and high carbonation of the beer scrubs the mouth of the creamy cheese. The beer is slightly more funky and a, unusually hidden, low pear ester is noticeable. Neither is substantially changed – they harmonize like the Everly Brothers, and you feel at home with the two of them.|
