It hugs you back and never offends.
Commercial release in December 2008.
Young, mild, but full of flavor, with a buttery body. Enthusiastic, like Ed Klessig, whom it was named after, it hugs you back, never offends, and is great both for first time tasters and afficionados.
A “clean rind” cheese made from raw cow’s milk formed into cooked, pressed curds and ripened 120 days, with a shelf life of six months — clean rind cheeses are meticulously wiped to keep them clean, cultivating a nearly perfect rind.
Sliceable, so it is great on sandwiches; grateable, so it shines in the kitchen; well behaved, so it belongs on your table.
