The wheels are dipped in yellow cheese wax before being aged for 2-3 months.

Hook’s Cheese Company – Mineral Point, Wisconsin
Nobody said that American cheese names had to be serious… And if you can get past the ridiculous nature of this name, you’ll be rewarded with a sweet and nutty sheeps’ milk cheese. Duda Gouda is a rindless wheel with a firm texture and a malty, caramelly sweetness laced with notes of lanolin and grass. The sheeps’ milk is sourced from neighboring dairies, and is transformed into cheese by Tony and Julie Hook, two of Wisconsin’s master cheesemakers. Aged between 9 and 12 months.
