Powerhouse Cheese Ash Bree: Review
Very, very good cheese. ? Made somewhere in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne Powerhouse Cheese Ash Bree [sic] is a delightful soft white mould cow’s milk cheese with ash within the rind. After some early earthy aromas the smell gave way to a more herbal one with a teeny but of ammonia. The paste has a lovely shine and softness along with a somewhat gooey texture. The paste itself has a delicious light dairy flavour along with medium levels of salt and acidity. The rind however gives the cheese some kick. If I’d tasted it blind I’d have sworn this was a delicious mild creamy blue cheese. It’s a really interesting combination executed immaculately. Visually pleasing and very enjoyable to eat.
