This Week's Tasting: February 28, 2020
Every week at Dairymaids we select six cheeses to include in our free cheese tasting.
Whenever we are open, we are tasting cheese. We stock over 150!
Ubriaco all Birra Rossa is made in Veneto, Italy by Moro Formaggi. The wheel is pierced with holes then bathed in a "birra rossa," a local, red microbrew for a minimum of 100 days. These holes allow the beer's flavor to infuse the inside of the cheese as well as the outside. The paste is firm and crystalline and the flavor is bright and fruity with a sharp, grassy hint.
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Baby Caprino, an ash-ripened goat's milk cheese from the CKC Farms in Blanco, Texas.
Granbury Gold, a raw cow's milk cheese made in the Gouda-style from the Eagle Mountain Dairy in Lipan, Texas.
Wrangeback, a raw cow's milk cheese made int he Alpine-style from Almnas Bruk in Sweden.
Oma, a raw cow's milk washed-rind from the Von Trapp Creamery in Vermont.
Blue Paradise, a rindless cow's milk blue from Hook's Cheese in Wisconsin.
Our wine of the week is an Albariño from Viña Cartin in Spain. We taste wine from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
We're also sampling Damson Plum Preserves from American Spoon in Michigan.
