Bergere Bleue is an artisanal blue cheese made from raw ewe's milk by the Northland Sheep Dairy in the United States. This creamy, roquefort-style blue cheese has a sticky, moist natural rind with occasional blotches of natural yeast and moulds. Bergere Bleue is a cylindrical shaped cheese with a rich aroma of lanolin and yeast. It melts in the mouth like butter, releasing the flavour of burnt caramel. The blue-green streaks of Penicillin Roquefort give a spicy piquancy to the pale lemon-coloured cheese with a moist and slightly crumbly texture. The more mature cheese is spreadable. It takes 4-12 months for the cheese to develop its full potency.
