Our Featured Gourmet Washed Rind 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.
Browse our great selection of Gourmet Washed Rind Cheeses. Washed rind cheeses are typically bathed or washed with salted water, wine, brandy or local spirits. The washing or bathing helps to break down the curd from the outside. The washing process also helps cheeses to retain moisture, and develop a powerful flavor. The cheese becomes soft and thick and the rind becomes part of the cheese. The color changes to reddish or yellowish. These pungent, stinky cheeses often have a smooth and creamy interior. Try them and let us know what you think by giving us your opinion in a product review.
