Vermont Creamery Bijou 4 oz
The 'jewel' of Vermont, the Bijou is a classic French Crottin made that gives the local goat's milk the royal treatment. Curd is ladled by hand, allowed to coagulate overnight, and slowly drains in cheese cloth. When these little buttons of cheese are allowed to ripen, each is uniquely sweet and yeasty, with a sharp complexity that arises from a few more weeks of aging. These little gems start off creamy, but become deliciously oozy with a little age, and become the perfect topping to a toasty baguette. A pint of Belgian Tripel brings out that baked bread notes, and the cheese brings out a tangy freshness unlike any other.
