A semi-soft washed rind cheese made from unpasteurised Guernsey cow’s milk with a vegetarian rennet.
The rind is washed with Treason IPA from Uprising Brewery in Windsor. The West Coast IPA helps this cheese promote a tangy, punchy flavour and aroma with a buttery texture.
“It gets a kick from the ale, its earthy, hoppy character contributing to a satisfying salty edge.” – Patricia Michelson, La Fromagerie
