Saint Agur is a brand of soft-ripened, blue-veined cheese made with cow’s milk. It combines the strength of blue cheese with the mildness of a very creamy texture. It is sold in large cylinders wrapped in aluminum foil, just like Roquefort, and is intended for cutting at the cheese counter. It is also sold in portions in the cheese aisle.

Saint Agur has no rind because it is wrapped in aluminum foil, but it has an irregular, moist surface. Its moist, crumbly paste is cream-colored, dotted with holes and mottled with dark bluish gray.
This cheese has a lightly salted flavor with a marked blue cheese taste that is softened by a creamy texture comparable to butter.
