Revered for its rich flavors of butterscotch, whiskey, and pecan, Beemster X-O has a deep ocher interior and a firm, crumbly texture. True to the characteristics of Beemster’s unique milk, this cheese retains a creamy mouthfeel, even though it's aged for more than 2 years. It’s also studded with crunchy, mouthwatering crystals that surprise the palate. Whether for a special occasion or your own special treat, Beemster X-O is a coveted favorite.

Beemster XO Fudgy Coffee Brownies by Chef Andrea Machuca-Kirkland
Chef Machuca bakes Beemster XO into dense, chocolaty brownies, with a hint of cardamom and coffee. “They’re cakey on the outside and fudgy on the inside,” she says. “And when you cut through them, you can see the melted Beemster.” At BXCR, she serves these brownies with chili popcorn and peanut butter ice cream for a very popular dessert.
