Hop Along

Cowgirl Creamery's newest cheese is Hop Along, a rich, semi-firm organic cow's milk cheese washed with organic cider and aged 45 days, similar to cheeses made centuries ago by Trappist monks. The nose is yeasty and sweet, reminiscent of an apple orchard, and the paste is pudgy with a silky mouthfeel that melts easily on the tongue. Hop Along offers bright acidity and flavors of brown bread and milk chocolate with a distinct savory note toward the rind.
