Appearance

Firstly, we love the bold branding of Vacka, with it's pop culture style. Inside the card box you'll find the Vrie encased in a paper wrapper.

Image

Once this is peeled away for the cheese you'll happily discover a bold white bloom if ever we have seen one, it's got an nice thin crust of white rind bloom and underneath you can see a smooth more blonde nutty colour tone to the cheese.

It's appearance is naturally cultivated over a period of 1 month.

Aroma

Mouldy bloomy aromas which seduce and make us salivate at the thought of it.

Flavour

Flavours are rich, creamy and elegant.

Image

There are tones of fermentation that give you that more mature, mouldy flavour, this increases more so a moment after you have tried it and there are no lingering acidic aftertones.

Texture

The texture is semi-soft with a slight firmness that makes for a slow slice through the cheese.

Image

The outside crust of white bloom gives you that outer firmness that protects the softer interior that is ultra smooth, a little dense and also velvety.

Longevity

The Vaca Vrie has a best before of 60 days, 2 months, this is ample time to save it for a vegan cheese party.

Environmental Credentials

  • Using organic ingredients
  • Wrapped in paper
  • In a beautiful presented box

 

Summary

One of the best vegan brie cheeses we have ever tried, yummy!!
