Limburger, first introduced in Belgium, is the most famous of all Belgian cheeses. It was made in the Liege region and sold in Limburg. The Germans began making Limburger and later naturalized it, making themselves the sole producers in Europe. This assertive cheese complemented their taste for highly-flavored game and meats. Today, a single cheese plant in Monroe, Wisconsin, produces all the surface-ripened Limburger made in the United States.
Just one factory in the USA, located in Monroe, Wis., produces Limburger, the famous "stinky" cheese originating in Belgium. Pungent, strong aroma, surface-ripened
Brownish surface, ivory interior
Smooth, creamy, semi-soft
Earthy, pungent, increasing in intensity with age
The best way to enjoy this cheese is the traditional way – a thick slice of Limburger and a thick slice of raw onion, layered between two slices of dark rye bread. Best served with an icy cold bock beer. Try a Limburger pizza with caramelized onions; blend with a milder cheese if desired. Either way, it’s truly a taste treat.
Goes Well With
Pumpernickel and other dark or whole-grain breads, crackers, pretzels, onions, pickled vegetables, mustard Dark and bock beers
