The Flavor Experience

Sweet and nutty flavors dominate up front, but are braced with a pleasant savoriness in the finish.  Texturally dense, smooth and rich, not unlike fudge. 

The Story

Goat milk is not typically used for producing aged cheeses, or Goudas of any age.  But when the affineur is the preeminent Gouda maturer in the world, anything is possible.  Betty lets Brabander rest at temperatures higher than normal, which elicits savory notes  and a slight gaminess that are not commonly found in Gouda.  That is not to say that the expected sweetness and nuttiness are absent, they simply exist in harmony with other flavors in the spectrum.

Usage Tips

Pair with Riesling or maltier ales, and always have a small bowl of Cinnful Cocoa Pecans on hand!

Straight From the Monger’s Mouth

"Because of its mild and sweet nature, it is instantly appealing to the most nascent cheese fanatic. But its layers of flavor and complex finish mean that it will impress the connoisseur in your life as well. " — Hunter F., CCP

  1. Amazing! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2016

    One of my top 5 favorite cheeses. I love goat goudas for their smooth yet firm texture and robust flavor, yet with a mellower tang than young soft goat cheeses. This pairs exceptionally well with black lava cashews and fig spreads.
