Interesting! I had a blue agouti burmese whom looked almost exactly like that as a baby. Later on the beige tone all but disappeared and he got a much clearer blue tint to him (as well as more pronounced points, needless to say). I suspect a blue agouti colourpoint probably develops somewhat similar.
I find the blue agouti varieties more interesting than the non agouti blues for the most part. This is a good example as to why. Slightly warmer shade to them, which somehow makes a variety more "lively" for lack of a better term.
