The Flavor Experience
A rare example of Gouda made with sheep's milk. The extra fat content of sheep's milk results and a somewhat sweeter style of Gouda, but it is nicely balanced with grassy and nutty flavors. This is an easy one to fall in love with, so be careful.
The producers of this cheese have been granted the right to let their sheep feed on a nature reserve in Holland. It is said that the sheep eat even better than the cheese maker herself, and the ewes are treated like family members.
Pair with Brown or Amber Ales or Wheat Beers. An easy pairing for oaky white wines and even whiskey.
