LeFou Brew is great!

We tried the Lefou Brew at Gaston Tavern this weekend, and it is great!

It is a nice change from soda, soda, soda.

Great treat, and the "tavern" is cool too!

Word of caution for some. It's pretty good but VERY sweet. if you love sweet drinks, you will enjoy it.

We thought it was great too, but yes, very sweet! I'm glad DH and I split one because I don't think I could drink the whole thing on my own as it was that sweet.

Yes, it is tastier than I thought it would be. I had it last week and split it with my husband. It is quite sweet.

Tried it so I said I could and won't get it again. Didn't care for the mango foam on top of the frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow. Strange combinations.

I don't care for apple juice either but I thought this was good!

I was expecting it to be horribly sweet, so I was pleasantly surprised! It wasn't as horribly sweet as feared, just regular kids' drink sweet. I enjoyed the hint of marshmallow so it wasn't just apple juice and liked that the foam was kind of bitter. I didn't drink the whole thing though, but I also can't drink a whole can of Coke

We bought a "pint" of the LeFou Brew the other day. It's... not Butterbeer.

Well, for one thing, Butterbeer didn't almost make me violently sick in the middle of the park...

Typing on a phone is hard.

Can you buy the cool cup with a regular soft drink in it, or is that the only thing they sell there? We love the cup.... but drink sounds gross. After hearing all of you, I am convinced I would hate it.

I think I saw the cup in the gift shop. I might be wrong as we were in and out pretty quick. It was small and crowded in there!

Those cups are sold in various places around the park, with different decals. Sleepy Hollow had the brown ones.

Tavern--"An establisment where alcoholic beverages may be consumed on the premesis"

So those other faux "taverns" are also misnamed
