Beemster Vlaskaas Gouda
Vlaskaas was historically made only once a year, during the flax harvest festival, but as festival traditions fell away, the recipe was buried. Thankfully, in 2004, a review of Beemster’s past cheeses led to its rediscovery. Vlaskaas was obviously too good to make just once a year and is now available year-round. It’s buttery and semi-soft with unique sweet-milk flavor, notes of almond, and a touch of sharpness that adds depth.
TASTE: Almond notes and a uniquely sweet-sharp finish.
AGE: Around 5 Months with variation.
MILK TYPE: Cow
FOOD PAIRINGS: Apples, fresh figs, walnuts and artisan salami.
DRINK PAIRINGS: Session ale, mineral-y white wine.
