Has anyone tried Berliner Kase?

My local Whole Foods has recently been carrying Berliner Kase but I can't seem to find anything about it online. I think it's a Whole Foods exclusive so perhaps that's why there's not much general information. Has anyone tried it? Any thoughts?

  1. I know WF's often has wrapped pieces of Berliner Kase by the beer. We've used it for grilled cheese and beer/cheese fondue. Melts well with some caramel to it.

      Ahh, that makes sense given it's placement and I probably didn't notice the association as our local stores can't sell alcohol. Do you think it would work in eggs? Is it mild?

        Yes, if you like your eggs with a bit of caramelized cheese flavor. That's what really comes across, especially warmed, is the caramel.

            This cheese is delicious! I just had a taste but think I might pair it with roasted asparagus tonight.

              If I'm following along properly, you've been enjoying the heck out of several cheeses this month! Good for you!!

                Yes! With the help of this Board I have become quite the cheese addict. I just can't get enough, perhaps a bad addiction to have acquired...I never knew cheese had such diversity, it's such a wonderful food.
