Young Goat Gouda is a goat cheese that even the skeptics will love. It’s supple and sweet, with notes of caramel and just a hint of tang. Pair it with a malty Amber Ale and serve alongside Creminelli Barolo Salami, Onesto Sea Salt Crackers, and Mitica Candied Walnuts to make the perfect cheese plate.
- Though it may not technically be a Gouda—traditional Goudas from Holland must be made with cow’s milk— Young Goat Gouda is made using the same production methods as the Dutch cheese. The semi-firm wheel is mild and sweet, without the chalky texture of the typical goat cheese.
- The cheese ages for approximately four months — just enough time for the paste to develop its supple, elastic texture.
- Like the typical goat cheese, Young Goat Gouda has a bright, white color.
- The beta-carotene naturally occurring in grass and responsible for the golden hue in cheeses made from other types of milk—specifically, cow’s milk—is absorbed by the goat, resulting in the cheese’s white color.
