Jam Session Raspberry Gose

Fyne Ales

Spritely and refreshing with a nose of sour berries, rhubarb and raspberries. Flavour is lightly tart with under ripe berry and freshly harvested wheat all brought to a savoury finish of the sea salt.

Tingly Oysters

The last minute addition of beer to this classic oyster accompaniment brings a little added frisson to it. It makes me giggle every time I eat it because it literally tickles the tastebuds!

Serves 4 (3 oysters each)

Ingredients
  • 12 fresh oysters
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons raspberry vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon finely minced shallot
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated horseradish, pounded to a paste in a pestle and mortar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Big DropxFyne Ales raspberry gose
  • Crushed ice
Method
  1. Shuck the oysters (carefully) and arrange on a serving plate covered in crushed ice, as you want to get this to the table as quickly as possible.
  2. Prepare all the ingredients and mix everything together thoroughly apart from the beer (keep that until the last minute).
  3. When you are ready to serve, mix in the beer and get it to the table as quickly as you can to preserve the light effervescence of the beer – that way you can enjoy the tingly oysters!
  4. Enjoy with the rest of the beer, served in champagne flutes.
