About Buttermilk Blue

Roth Käse’s Buttermilk Blue is a bold blue cheese with a full-on blue aroma (from the mold), with a creamy texture and a tangy, but not biting, buttermilk flavor. It’s called Buttermilk Blue because it actually delivers a flavor of buttermilk. Serve any leftover cheese crumbled over a green salad or sliced tomatoes and red onions, a burger, steak or sandwich.
