This semi-soft, washed-rind cheese is made from pasteurized milk. It has an ivory colour and is dotted with little holes. Its texture is supple and creamy, and it has a fruity aroma. The cheese is specially designed for connoisseurs; an additional 110 days of aging gives its rind a weathered appearance and a creamier texture. With its unique stronger taste, it makes a wonderful addition to the line of Oka cheeses.
Its name pays homage to Brother Alphonse Juin, who created the famous Oka cheese, one of Quebec’s oldest cheeses, in 1893.
Oka Brother Alphonse is available at certain times of the year only in specialty cheese shops.
