It has a somewhat sharp, spicy taste.
It is made in wheels 3 1/3 pounds (1.5 kg) big, and sold in pieces wrapped in foil.
Byland is made by Shepherds Purse Cheeses in Thirsk, Yorkshire.
Byland Blue Cheese crumbles easily.
Byland Blue was created by Judy Bell in 2002, after researching methods used by the Cistercian Monks at Byland Abbey, near Coxwold, North Yorkshire.
