Danish Blue cheese, also known as Danablu in Denmark, is a light, blue-veined cheese. This semi-soft creamery cheese is typically drum or block shaped and has a white to yellowish, slightly moist, edible rind. Made from cows' milk it is aged for eight to twelve weeks. Danish blue has a milder, less complex flavor characterized by a sharp, salty, almost metallic taste. Danish Blue is often served crumbled on salads or as a dessert cheese with fruit. Eaten alone, dry fruity red wines complement the flavor nicely.
