brie cheese means: This soft and creamy, cow’s milk cheese is made from cream. It has a mild, almost nutty taste. Also edible is the white rind. If you want brie that’s at its best, choose one that feels plump and springy. Although it is okay for the rind edges to be slightly brown, ripe Brie should not last more than a few days. Brie that is not in its prime will turn grayish and smell ammonia. (in Cooking Dictionary)
