A Beer with Your Cheese?

the world and Vieux Boulogne, a cheese made from cows’ milk and matured
by washing with beer has been declared France’s smelliest cheese by a panel
of cheese experts.

Experts at the Cranfield University, Bedfordshire, said that the cheese
smelled of unwashed feet and unwashed tom cats, which was probably due
to the kind of beer it was washed with, reports the

smelliest cheese while Camembert, the mostly widely imitated cheese in
the world, was rated third.
