Up front, the woodsy presence of bark and pine. A trace of smoke after that. A deep undergirding of umami throughout. It may be small as a button, but Fierte is not to be trifled with.
“Fierte” means pride in French, and we are releasing this limited edition wheel in celebration of this year’s Pride festivities. It is washed in Biere de Fierte, a Beglian-style brew also made in honor of Pride by our neighbors at Big Alice Brewery, who developed the recipe in collaboration with one of our own team members. Biere di Fierte is made with lemongrass and ginger, which translate onto the cheese as that wonderfully rich and woodsy flavor that it takes on after three weeks of aging and washing in our caves.
