Humboldt Fog (Cypress Grove) GOAT
Producer: Cypress Grove Chevre
Milk source: Goat
Country of origin: United States of America

central line of edible white ash much like Morbier
The cheese ripens starting with the bloomy mold exterior, resulting in a core of fresh goat cheese surrounded by a runny shell.
As the cheese matures, more of the originally crumbly core is converted to a soft-ripened texture.
The bloomy mold and ash rind are edible but fairly tasteless.
The cheese is creamy, light, and mildly acidic with a stronger flavor near the rind.
