The super-extended maturation of this ubiquitous Dutch cheese (it can last for years) brings out a depth of flavour rarely found among its supermarket-shelf equivalents.
Characteristics: aromatic, full-flavoured, with bursts of caramel and a crunch from the crystals that form during fermentation.
Best with: a fruity, hoppy beer.
