This is fresh yeast. Which for whatever reason is uncommon in the US. Here in Denmark it’s pretty much the only thing we use in baking.

As far as I know neither is better (instant/active dry vs fresh) and I have no idea why the two cultures on either side of the Atlantic developed such stark differences in yeast preparation method over time, but it is … mildly interesting.
