Le Wavreumont is a Belgian cheese produced by Fromagerie des Ardennes, located in Werbomont. It was created as a tribute to the monastic tradition of nearby Monastere St. Remacle. This is an unpasteurized organic cow's milk cheese available in ± 21 cm diameter rounds weighing approximately 2.1 kg.
The colour of the cheese varies according to the season it is produced in. It is pale in winter and an orangey yellow in spring, when the cows return to graze on the lush pastures of the Ardennes. The interior of the cheese is butter coloured, with small pinholes in the semi-soft, creamy paste. It has a fresh flavour and nutty aftertaste, with lingering flavours of butter and grass.
