FRENCH CHEESE VOTED WORLD'S STINKIEST
Normandy product owes smell, color to beer brushing.

LONDON -- A soft, pungent cheese from northern France has
topped a British researcher's study of the world's stinkiest
cheeses.

Academics at Cranfield University, north of London, said Friday
that Vieux Boulogne, a Normandy cheese made from cow's milk,
was the smelliest of 15 cheeses tested. Two other Normandy cheeses,
Pont l'Eveque and Camembert, came in second and third.

Scientist at the university used human sniffers and a c omputer-
linked "electronic nose" to rank the cheeses by ordorousness.

Stephen White, who led the research, said those whose rinds had
been wash in brine, bandy or -- as with Vieux Boulogne--beer.

"There was no obvious correlation between the age of the selected
cheeses and smelliness, nor cow's milk origin, although cow's milk
cheeses did dominate the smell chart
," White said.

Vieux Boulogne owes its distinctive orange color and pungent smell
to the brushing of its rind with beer during the two months it spends
aging in cellars around the town of Boulogne-sur-Mer in Northern Frnce.

The smelliest dairy product in the survey, commissioned by a group
that promote French cheese in Britain, came from France, Munster, a
cow milk's cheese from the eastern regions of Alsace and Lorraine,
was fourth, followed by Brie de Meaux and Roquefort.

Hard cheeses, such as Parmesan and English cheddar, were the least
smelly of those tested.
