The Belper Knolle ("Belp Ball") is a Swiss cheese made in the city of Belp, Switzerland.[1]

Made from unpasteurized cow's milk, it can be found in two variants, red or gold depending on its degree of maturation, fresh or dry. A fresh Belper Knolle can be heated to 60 °C and softened in a sort of square-shaped stone before consumption.
