IF YOU CAN IMAGINE A CROSS between an icy cold mug of beer and a root beer Popsicle, you've got an idea of what the tasty and refreshing beer sorbet at Lejonet & Bjornen Ice-Cream Parlor in West L.A. says when it hits your palate. But if brew isn't you, there are about 60 other flavors of sorbets and ice creams--including Creme de Banane, Tiramisu and Creme Caramel ice creams, and sorbets flavored in gooseberry, kiwi and a seriously puckery lemon. All the confections are made daily on the premises from top-quality ingredients and served in a pristine blue and white store that invites repeat visits. Tasting is encouraged.
