ColoRouge is a natural rind cheese made using pasteurized whole cow's milk, made by the MouCo Cheese Company in Fort Collins, Colorado, US. Aged from 2 to 8 weeks, during aging the curd is hand ladled and then turned periodically by hand. Then it is hand rubbed that gives a special bloomy rind to the cheese. When young the cheese is soft and creamy in texture with mild earthy aroma. As it ages the texture becomes softer with buttery taste. The fully matured cheese is more complex and spicy.
