Sélection Rolf Beeler Hagebuttenkäse

Rolf Beeler selected Hagebuttenkäse from the Swiss Toggenburg

This cheese was created from a collaboration between Rolf Beeler and the cheesemaker also responsible for the Rolf Beeler Toggenburger.

Dried rose hip (in German “Hagebutte”), the fruit of the rose plant, is added to the paste and the rind. In order to keep the rose hip dust on the rind together and to apply a dry rind texture the cheese is then aged with white mould. It shows a mild aroma with a hint of sweetness at a smooth consistency.
