    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 did not like it at all. It was so sweet.

    Sweeter than frozen butterbeer, probably about as sweet as unfrozen butterbeer. maybe a bit sweeter.

    It tastes better than the description... mango and apple juice sounds strange, but it works!

    We will definitely try one during our upcoming trip, but I don't care for apple juice. Does it just taste like frozen apple juice or do the other flavors mask it a bit? I love apples, just not the juice!

    It tastes like frozen apple juice with something else nasty (the toasted marshamallow flavor) and topped with the mango foam (also nasty).

    I liked the first few sips...but that was all I could manage. Way to sweet for me!

    I'll take frozen butter beer over the brew any day!

    That sounds like an interesting combo flavors - not something I would necessarily pick out...;) but i am definitely going to try to some when I go! I also like the mug...:D

    I probably won't like it. I don't like sweet! But I will be trying it. We were there for a soft opening in early Nov. I was on the phone with a friend who told us to try it but DH heard marshmallow and apple juice and he wouldn't try it. I already knew I prob won't like it so I decided to wait for next week when DDIL ( who likes everything) and DS are with me to try it!! :goodvibes

    The flavors weren't bad, even the mango and marshmallow with the apple. The sweetness is cloying though. If only they could serve it with rum.

    I liked it last week.

    My kids liked the "body" but not the foam, once we stirred them together with a spoon they liked the whole thing.

    Hubby and I both thought it was way to sweet and I like sweet. Loved the tavern and the way the brew looks tho. It was fun ordering it and trying it.
