ColoRouge is a natural rind cheese made using pasteurized whole cow's milk, made by the MouCo Cheese Company in Fort Collins, Colorado, US. Aged from 2 to 8 weeks, during ageing the curd is hand-ladled and then turned periodically by hand. Then it is hand rubbed that gives a special bloomy rind to the cheese. When young the cheese is soft and creamy in texture with a mild earthy aroma. As it ages the texture becomes softer with a buttery taste. The fully matured cheese is more complex and spicy.
