Heritage
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.
Description
Just one factory in the USA, located in Monroe, Wis., produces Limburger, the famous "stinky" cheese originating in Belgium. Pungent, strong aroma, surface-ripened
Appearance
Brownish surface, ivory interior
Texture
Smooth, creamy, semi-soft
Flavor
Earthy, pungent, increasing in intensity with age
Serving Suggestions
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

Surprised! November 4, 2013
Reviewer: Steve from Rochester, NY  
The first time I ordered Limburger, it was the 3 month aged type. It was great. The second time I inadvertently ordered the 1 month aged Limburger and was surprised to find it crumbly and not smooth as I had expected.

Turns out that some people like it that way and order the 1 month variety all the time. Personally, I prefer he 3 month version. I ordered that a second time and it was great again.

So, be careful when you're ordering Limburger cheese to make sure you get the kind you like best.

Loved it August 12, 2013
Reviewer: M. Johnson from Fullerton, California  
Just as I remembered it after many many years of no Limberger, can not find it in any of the major markets, only one German specialty shop 80 miles away!

Stinky cheese at its best August 5, 2013
Reviewer: John from Cedar Rapids, Iowa  
As always your limburger is great. It arrived on a hot day yet it was sufficiently cooled to be alright. I love it's creamy goodness.
