This semi-soft steeped in cheese is made from pasteurized milk. It is steeped and aged in Aphrodisiaque beer from the Brasserie Dieu du Ciel in St-Jérôme, which gives it a unique chocolate-brown rind. It explodes with vanilla flavour to start, then goes through a strong espresso flavour to finish with a delicious dark chocolate taste.
After a hard day at work or on a weekend, do you ever reward yourself with a beer? Well, the Fromagerie du Domaine Féodal understands! It’s where the cheese’s name comes from. Since it’s steeped in beer, treat yourself to the La Récompense cheese as a reward! In fact, why not have both? Beer-aged cheeses go very well with beer. Enjoy!
La Récompense is available from the cheese maker, in specialty grocery stores and cheese shops as well as in supermarkets.
