Browse our great selection of pungent or stinky cheeses. Some people love them, some people hate them. It’s all about getting it past your nose to experience the flavor and texture of the cheese. Many pungent cheeses have a washed-rind and if you like to pair these pungent creatures you can do that with a floral, sweet wine like a Riesling or Gewurtztraminer, a full-bodied red wine or try it with a beer, a Lambic. We dare you. Try them and let us know what you think by giving us your opinion in a product review.
We will be adding exciting new Gourmet Pungent Cheeses frequently, so come back soon!
Our Featured Gourmet Pungent Cheese
Chimay with Trappister beer receives a very personal preparation and maturing, resulting in an exclusive, authentic gourmet cheese. Its natural rind is bathed in Chimay Trappister beer so that its flavor flatters the palate and the nose; the rind is sticky.
The Trappist monks of Scourmont have known the secrets of making cheese since 1876. Cheese was made from good milk from their farm and matured in the vaulted cellars of the abbey. Today, Chimay with Trappister beer is made exclusively with regional milk and the Trappist monks have modernized their production equipment.
Consume the Chimay with Trappister beer with a strong (authentic Belgian) beer and you will have a great combination.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
If you would like to buy the entire wheel of approx. 5 pounds, please contact us.
