My dictionary hasn't been very helpful.  I want to describe a cheddar as "sharp".  I see an entry "âcre", but I doubt that's what I'm looking for.  Can some sharp cheddar lover help me?

I see "piquant" can work

but I  am not sure if it the only ,or best way  to express the idea of "sharp".

"relevé " can also be used....

I think piquant will work just fine.  Thanks, George!
