My kids call it the "stinky cheese" and it is to a degree, wandering a bit towards the limburger end of the spectrum. But it is flavorful, rich, and absolutely delightful. I serve it on mini party rye bread. The aroma seems stronger than the taste. I order a few ponds every winter when it ships easily and well.
Warning - After opening the factory wrap you need a sealed glass container to store it in the refrigerator. Simple plastic storage containers will not do the job of containing the aroma.

My father and his family (Bernard's) resided in Mayville WI near Theresa. Dad even worked the night shift at Widmer's for a spell when I was a baby. We moved to Ohio when I was a toddler. When we travel back visiting family we would always make a point to go to Widmer's to get some of their great cheese's. I always loved the aged brick and brick curd's. Now I am 58 I travel up to visit I stop in the factory to buy some of their great cheese and I order it online as well.
This is the best brick cheese I have ever eaten.

I ran a plant making this same cheese years ago. As far as I know Widmer is the only plant still making this best of the American style cheeses. It has that flavor that only a good ripened smear will develop. This is an American cheese with European panache.
If I had one criticism it would be the cheese needs a few more days in the curing cellar to be a 5 star experience. But, hey- this is some good stuff all the same.

My grandfather(Christ Kohli) from Switzerland first started making Brick Cheese in 1888 when he came to Theresa Wisconsin and opened his cheese factory. It was the best cheese then and still is now. Widmers carries on a great tradition.

This is a very good tasting cheese one you can't buy in Wyoming. Next time I'm getting the big brick.

I use to buy a brick cheese from a retail store years ago. The store went out of business, never knowing who made this incredible cheese. I came across Widmers website and ordered what I hoped to be the same cheese. It was !!! This brick does have a strong (stinky) odor but an fantastic taste. I've already reordered, the 2 1/2 lb. this time. Please don't stop making this cheese because I won't stop buying it.

Can't tell you how welcome the box was when it arrived at my sister's house. We grew up near Widmers and have always enjoyed the brick cheese...she was thrilled to get an early Christmas present and enjoy through the holidays!
