Pleasant Ridge Reserve
This American Alpine style is a wonderful example of the style. The center of this cheese has a big salty bite to it, but this fades into more earthy flavor approaching the natural rind. The summer seasonality of the milk comes through in grassy tones that carry throughout the cheese. A wonderful melter, Pleasant Ridge Reserve is sure to show its versatility on and off the cheese board.
