Beemster Graskaas cheese

Has anyone had the opportunity to purchase/eat any of this seasonal cheese, produced in limited quantity, from the Dutch Netherlands? At $14.00/lb, it's considered a special gourmet cheese and is quite sought after. Aged for only a month, it's very (VERY) mild, though also, very creamy in texture.

I happened upon some last weekend at a local high-end grocery - they were doing sample tasting - and I bought a portion. They "sample lady" claimed it made a great grilled cheese which I'm a sucker for. Even though it didn't taste like much in the store, I thought heat may bring out a hidden flavor. It didn't.

So, to my original question. Has anyone eaten this cheese to find the qualities apparent to go ga-ga for the annual spring production? If so, I guess my taste palate is just not honed to the finer qualities and I should retreat to the Kraft cheese section of the store. Just wondering.
