Bent River, Alemar Cheese Co's flagship product is a Camembert-style cheese named after the sharp turn of Minnesota just a few hundred yards from the production site. It is available in the market at five weeks and over six weeks or so, the cheese will fully mature to showcase its optimum texture and flavour profile.
As the cheese ages, it will have a smooth paste throughout, right from the centre of the cheese. Depending on your liking, the flavours will vary from mellow, mushroomy, milky, buttery, and subtle when it's young; leading the way as it ages.
