Anyone try the "LeFou's Brew"?

It's being served at Gaston's Tavern, i saw the description and it actually sounds kind of good to me. Wondering if anyone has tried it. It's frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow, topped with all-natural passion fruit-mango foam.

I thought the first sip was great. By the third sip, not so much. Way too sweet. I dumped 75% of it.

it's extremely sweet. Your opinion of it will depend on your tolerance of sweetness.

DD (6) and I both dumped it down the drain in the bathroom. I thought it was disgusting from the first sip. She said it was good on the first sip, but by about the 3rd sip, she started thinking it was nasty. The foam, marshmallow and apple juice just didn't taste like they went together to me. It was like a bunch of competing clashing tastes..in a bad way.

Well that's disappointing. We'll still give it a try though.

To me it tasted just like apple juice. I don't think think it was too sweet, but apple juice in itself is sweet. I thought it was okay.

It was pretty good. It's not as good as Butterbeer (which I still dream about almost weekly), but in small doses, LeFou's Brew was pretty decent.

Personally, I love the stuff! I order it without the foam, now, since the foam is rather sour and doesn't seem to match the drink. But it's almost apple cidery-tasting, with that hint of marshmallow. I love apple juice anyway, and it's not sicky-sweet to me like Butterbeer is. I actually prefer it strongly over Butterbeer because Butterbeer leaves a terrible artificial sweetener taste in my mouth for the rest of the day.

I love apple juice so I'm excited to try it! The foam sounds kinda nasty though, not sure about that.
