Le Brebiou is a sheep's milk cheese produced and refined in the Pyrenees Atlantiques region of France by Bongrain. It has a very soft texture with a firm, smooth paste and velvety, bloomy rind. The creaminess of sheep's milk and the rich, green pastures give the Brebiou a slight smell of fungus and sweet, milky taste that becomes tarter, toward its centre. Apart from various packed forms, there is also a light version called Brebiou ligne et plaisir, which contains only with 10% fat.
