Product Info

Aged: 26 months
Texture: Hard

Whiskey. Butterscotch. Toasted Pecan. These are just a few of the flavors you can expect to find in our extra aged Beemster XO cheese. Matured for more than two years, this cheese retains a creamy mouth feel yet has a firm and crumbly texture. Deep caramel notes and mouthwatering crunchy crystals surprise the palate to make this variety a coveted favorite.

Serving Ideas

Experiment with bold flavors with this one! Try dry-cured black olives, fig cake, spicy honey roasted nuts and honeycomb. The firm, crumbly texture makes it ideal for grating and can be added to kick up flavor and add depth.

Beverage Pairings

Pair with dark beers and sweeter farmhouse ales. For a nightcap, pair with Sauternes or oloroso sherry. Choose full-bodied and dry wines.
