beer noob tried Ommegang

so... from the last thread someone said..try Ommegang.. before I got the chance to order some online my husband and I went to a friend's house. He is always trying new beers because the only one he likes is Guiness and he's always trying to find new ones. Well he found Ommegang at the local supermarket and decided to try it. I saw it and got really excited!
He had it in the fridge and I said that it needed to be cool, not cold. So, we let it sit with us through dinner and dessert until game time. (We play board games....Catan, heroscape, trilogy, etc.)
We poured some out between us all. When I first smelled it, it reminded me of something fruity. Not a super sweet fruit, but a deep fruit.. It was very aromatic. I smelled it and knew this was going to be good, and it smells like it has a big bite. So, I took my first swallow. It doesn't taste as fruity as it smells. It is a very hearty taste to it. It is in my opinion very smooth. It did have a slight sweet taste and then a kick. It is really good beer. I will definitely be trying the other kinds! I enjoyed every last drop of it. My friend, he said it was good, but wasn't changed by it. But, I loved it. My husband enjoyed it too.
