Hirtenkase German Cheese Taste Test Tuesday – Episode 152

By Patrick

So we head to the hills of Germany for this cheese- Germany you say? Yes Germany! Why? Well….everyone knows Germany is famous for their cheese- Ok no one I know knows much about German cheese- not even my wife’s German side. I logged onto gourmetlibrary.com and decided to see what they had and low and behold this bad boy popped. No it is not the most complex cheese in the world however it is just damn good.

When you think German cheese you make think of Limburger and then you probably will want to throw up- Little known fact that mosquitoes are equally attracted to Limburger cheese as dirty feet- I looked it up! In fact they are placing pieces of Limburger cheese in Africa to attract the mosquitoes and keep them away from people. True story I found it on the internets and everything on the internets is true! But this was a Wiki so I am believing it.

Anyway give this yummy Hirtenkase a try, I think you will really like it.

    Good question J-man- a red with some bright fruit and very mild oak and tanin would be good-

    You've got me intrigued!

    German cheese? Who thought of such an animal? Now I'm going to investigate and look for.

    Thanks!

    I am with you – I was sort of shocked when I saw it- really good stuff- not overly complex but really good balance- I think most people will like it

    I end every day with wine and cheese and watch Gary V and now you. This is what I look forward to all day. It is the highlight to the end of my day, so seeing a different kind of cheese intrigues me.

    Thanks again.
