Liederkranz originated in upstate New York in the late 1800s as a replica of a traditional soft, smelly cheese from Germany that immigrants missed, and could no longer get because it would spoil during shipping. The cheese recipe left New York for Ohio in 1926 before finally finding a new home in Wisconsin, which has an enthusiastic German fan base.


Slightly less pungent than Limburger, but similar. Surface ripened, made in small rectangles. Robust and buttery with pale yellow crust becoming golden brown with age. Spreadable.


Moist, edible, golden yellow crust cradles a pale ivory interior with a honey-like consistency.


Soft and creamy


Robust and buttery flavor; milder than Limburger.

Goes Well With

Pairs particularly well with dark bread and dark beer and is enjoyed as an appetizer, on salads or sandwiches, or with fruits.

Wonderful Stinky Cheese March 29, 2014
Reviewer: Dale from Cape Cod  
I remember this cheese from25 - 30 years ago and it tastes like it never went away. My one thought though is I'd like to see it aged more, maybe a 3 month version like your limburger.

Perfect November 11, 2013
Reviewer: Bonnie C. from Culpeper, VA  
Arrived in it's own protective plastic bag (to limit scent), was at an absolutely perfect stage of ripeness for me.  Enjoyed some immediately as part of a "Pumpernickle, Liederkranz, & Onion" sandwich.

Memories October 27, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
When dining in our favorite German restaurant in Grand Rapids MI, my father would invariably ask for "liederkranz" cheese and crackers" for dessert.

The next generation to eat Liederkranz October 1, 2013
Reviewer: Diane M. from Washingtonville, NY  
My late father loved this cheese, and it was a sad day with the Liederkranz factory burned down.  (Wonder what that smelled like?!)  The stench of this cheese was horrendous, and he ate alone.  My new son-in-law loves cheese, the stinkier the better.  So, I knew he would love this.  And he did.  Bought a loaf of pumpernickel bread, and told him to eat it outdoors and drink a beer with it.  He really enjoyed it.  Wish I could find it in my local cheese shop.
