The Name’s Maxx – Der scharfe Maxx!

Der scharfe Maxx is made at Käserei Studer, which has been run by three generations since 1929.

The creamery traditionally makes Appenzeller, but started producing Der scharfe Maxx and other “renegade” cheeses in the 90’s that previously couldn’t be made in the country. The feisty bull on the label is true to its name. Though mild at first taste, this washed-rind, semi-soft cheese packs a beefy pungency and a bold, nutty bite. Its sharp finish offers a hint of barnyard from the locally produced raw milk. The addition of cream during the make process offers a rich silkiness that balances and mellows the savory notes of sautéed onion, beef broth, and sweet funk, which develop during its careful curing in the cellars.
