How to tell if Gouda Cheese is Bad?
It’s challenging to identify a terrible cheese, and gouda is no exception. Ruined-aged gouda cheese is more straightforward to spot than a bad new gouda. If your young gouda has a more robust flavor than regular gouda or has a weird odor, you should discard it. If your gouda cheese has gone wrong because there is no unusual odor outside, it’s a naturally strong taste. You have no choice but to examine its color.
