Gris de Lille

This cheese is also known as Puant de Lille or Puant Macere. Puant means "strong smell" which is really typical for this cheese. But the stronger it grows, the more the locals like it. It is a square-shaped cheese with sticky, pinkish-gray, washed rind. The pâte is soft, slightly elastic. The cheese has a fat content of about 45 per cent. This cheese is similar to Maroilles, although the curing process is different.
