This is one of the newest and most unique cheeses in the shop right now, so we were both excited to try it out and to share it with you. The Blue Jay is a Quintuple Creme Blue, which gives it a complex and fascinating texture with a satisfying bite and buttery flavor that blue cheese fans are so fond of. Taking this one over the top, Deer Creek Cheese then crushed juniper berries and put them into the blue strains to add an extra layer of flavor and texture.
It is a perfect blue with an interesting twist of a pine notes, and is exceptionally bold yet creamy. We recommend pairing this with one of our favorite local craft beers, Blank Slate Brewing Company’s Opera Cream, a low ABV stout with notes of coffee and chocolate.
You can find Deer Creek Cheese’s The Blue Jay inside The Cheese Shop at both Jungle Jim’s locations!
