Every year Betty Koster of Holland’s L’Amuse Cheese Shop sets aside a small amount of her Brabander goat gouda and ages them double the amount of time. Brabander is typically aged for 8 months, so Brabander Reserve (AKA Black Betty) is aged 16 months. She releases them to small, independent shops like ours just in time for the holidays. Brabander Reserve is crystally with big caramel, grass, and milkshake flavors. Don't miss it!
