Product InfoAged: 18 months
Texture: Firm with some crystallization
Beemster Classic cheese is aged eighteen months to give you even more of the signature nutty and butter-rich flavor profiles you expect from mature Gouda cheeses. These cheese wheels are aged with a century’s old process on specially tempered Beemster aging planks. The result is a firm texture, velvety mouth-feel, and complex flavor like no other.
Serving IdeasServe with smoked almonds, juicy red grapes, dates or fig spread.

Beverage PairingsEnjoy with hoppy, bitter craft beers. Pair with robust reds, such as Super Tuscans, California Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec or full-bodied whites, like a bold Chardonnay.
As part of a cheese course, pair with ruby Port.
