Hummingbird is a fresh sheep's and cow's milk cheese with a bloomy rind.
At 1-2 weeks old, Hummingbird is mild, buttery and creamy, at 4 weeks developing more earthy aromas and a softer paste while retaining a mellow flavor. The cheese is rich, milky and herbaceous, with savory aromas of straw and mushrooms.
Hummingbird pairs well with dry cider, tart white wines with pronounced minerality, and wheat beers.
