Danish: Da den blinde franskmand Louis Braille opfandt punktskriften, ændrede han verden for blinde. I år er det 200 året for hans fødsel, og det fejrer Midtfyns Bryghus med en "hemmelig" øl, der for alvor pirrer din smagssans. Øltypen må du blindsmage dig til - præcis som de 25.000 blinde og svagsynede, der bor i Danmark. Hvis din smagssans ikke er helt skarp, kan du udfordre din følesans på etiketten. Øltypen, alkoholprocenten og brygnummeret er skrevet på etiketten med punktskrift.

English: Since the blind Frenchman Louis Braille invented punt scripture, he changed the world for the blind. This year marks the 200th anniversary of his birth, and it celebrates Midtfyns Brewery with a "secret" beer, which really tickles your taste. So you have to blind-taste it just like the 25,000 blind and partially sighted people living in Denmark. If your taste is not completely sharp, you can challenge your senses on the label. The beer’s strength, content brew and the number is written on the label in Braille. www.dkblind.dk
