Ostenfelder Tilsiter

Good Mood is another, luscious washed rind cheese from Bio-Käserei Wiggensbach.  After aging in their cellars for six weeks, the rind of the cheese is coated with the same blend of spices used in the production of Alp Blossom.  The addition of the spices here helps to elevate the flavor of the cheese.  Floral and herbaceous notes are aplenty, blending perfectly with the buttery smooth texture of Good Mood, making it a well-balanced cheese that easily stands out.

PROFILE Tilsiter from here develops the classic orange hued rind that is standard on washed rind cheese. The aromas can be potent but retain a certain amount of pleasantness. The flavors are fruity and spicy, and certainly intense. Thanks to the high quality of milk used, the texture is incredibly creamy, melting like butter on the tongue.
