Midnight Moon Cheese

Nutty and sweet with a brown butter finish.
$14.99 8 oz.

Product Description

Dense and smooth with a satisfying crunch. The goat cheese for people who think they don't like goat cheese.

Country of Origin: California
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Goat
Rennet Type: Vegetarian Rennet

The Flavor Experience

Sweet, but more of a lactic sweetness than the typical caramel sweetness found in cow milk Goudas.  Brown butter tones carry on and on and on, before leaving the palate with a clean finish.

The Story

Produced in Holland exclusively for Cypress Grove in Humboldt County, California, Midnight Moon perfectly unites the Dutch expertise of Gouda-making with Cypress Grove's otherworldly penchant for fine goat cheese.  The result is sublime.  We love to suggest this to customers who claim they don't like goat cheese, because it is so different from the fresh, tart flavor we have come to expect from chevre. 

Usage Tips

Pair with a Belgian Tripel style, like Victory Golden Monkey.  Zinfandel, Syrah and dessert wines are lovely partners as well, and consider fig jam for something non-alcoholic.

Straight From the Monger’s Mouth

"I remember when this cheese was first introduced, and everyone wondered whether or not it could live up to Midnight Moon. While it might not be as iconic, it is every bit as tasty, and can be enjoyed in every season" — Hunter F., CCP
