Description

Roth cheese creamery in Monroe, Wisconsin, describes their Blue Affinee as ‘the Gateway Blue.’ If you’ve ever been a skeptic of blue cheese, Wisconsin Blue Affinee has a stunningly rich and buttery flavor that will make you forget everything you know about the flavor of blue cheese. Cook’s Illustrated rated this cheese as the top rated crumbled blue cheese both by itself and mixed into salad dressing. Blue Affinee also won a bronze award in the 2016 World Cheese Awards. This creamy buttermilk blue cheese has a wonderfully earthy, rich, and piquant flavor. The beautiful blue color of Blue Affinee makes this cheese an extravagant salad topping and brings a rich flavor to an otherwise bland salad. This Wisconsin cheese is also delicious melted onto a burger or spread on a garlic crostini. If you’re wary about trying blue cheese for the first time, or if you want to taste one of Wisconsin’s most prized blue cheeses, then Roth creamery’s Blue Affinee is the perfect choice.**

Best blue cheese I ever had.

Cheese
By Donna Lloyd

I think all of the cheese's that I got were fantastic. You can't get real cheese here in Ohio. I will be ordering more soon.

Outstanding
By Jim Sinclair

This is as delightful a blue cheese as I have ever tasted. The quality of this cheese has been consistently outstanding through several orders from WCM.

Blue

Very good love all kinds but this is a very delicious cheese

Thick n Rich
By Andy Coglianese

Creamy, melty, rich and thick. One of the better Blue cheeses I've ever tasted. Mad a half pound blue cheese burger last night with an onion dip as my condiment. Delicious!
