Known in Belgium as "The Jewel of Bruges," this delightfully soft, washed rind cheese meets such grand expectations with brilliance. Briefly aged in climate controlled cellars and made, of course, with the highest quality pasteurized milk from cows that graze on
the unique pastures of the Flemish Polders, Brugge Fleuronís deep, original taste is multifaceted. It is at once delicately sweet, nutty, and creamy, with notes of fresh mushrooms and an exquisite hint of spice to finish. All perfectly balanced and an even truer pleasure when allowed to slowly melt in your mouth. From its pleasant bouquet, supple rounded shape and amber crust (due to the surface ripening) to the smooth, velvety texture of the pale yellow interior, everything about Brugge Fleuron is inviting. Brugge Fleuron is ideal alone or with some worthy bread, but also lends itself to being a flavorful addition to recipes. It pairs well with Belgian beer like Kriek of Straffe Hendrik or a rich, red wine like California Pinot Noir. Brugge Fleuron is a pure gem that will surprise the senses. For such a beautifully rounded blend of flavors, the creators of Brugge Rodenbach produce this cheese in a matching spherical form with a grooved rind that brings traditional wooden beer barrels to mind.
