made by Alemar Cheese Company (Mankato, MN)
Named after the sharp turn of the Minnesota River just a few hundred yards from the production site, it is released at five weeks. Over the next six weeks or so, the cheese ripens to full maturity. Ripe Bent River adds its own twist to the classic mushroomy cauliflower profile of Camembert, offering flavors of roasted Brussels sprouts and zesty fresh butter. A worthy rival for any true Camembert.
