Ewephoria (Sheep Gouda)
Ewephoria, called by many "the candy of cheeses," is a relatively new Gouda-style cheese from the Friesland region of Holland. It still is hard and somewhat acidic, but unlike standard Goudas, Ewephoria is made from sheep's milk and is pasteurized. It is, however, made using the same carefully-guarded starter cultures that give Goudas their distinctive flavor. Ewephoria is aged 10 months, has a butterscotch color and a rather sweet, nutty, buttery flavor.
