The cheeses are round, about 1.5 to 2 cm (¾ inch) tall, and weigh approximately 500 g (17 oz.) The crust is white with mould, and like Brie, it gets creamier inside as it ages.
Brie de chèvre cheese is aged for just 10 to 12 days: it matures quickly because it is so thin.
The apparent resemblance to Brie, however, vanishes with the first bite: it has a very goaty taste.
Brie de chèvre contains 45% butterfat.
