Berggenuss is a smear-rinded cheese that's mild on the nose but surprisingly aromatic, even spicy, with age. Another example of the skills of Swiss cheese maker Franz Renggli at the Oberberg mountain dairy. Berggenuss, literally translated the "enjoyment" or "treat" of the mountains, was one of the highlights the U.S. importers tasted during a trip to Switzerland during the summer of 2013. At Kaeserei Oberberg, they tasted two different stages of aging, and even the early stage of ripening revealed complex flavors. It proved what the cheese maker had explained: the quality of the pure mountain milk expresses itself in the cheese. This is a lovely cheese for fans of Appenzeller, cave aged Gruyere, or Etivaz.
