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

cab (866) - - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle.50cl. Nice but heavy sweetness to the aroma and some stench fruit and very malty. looks fine in the glass. Taste is medium sweetness, lightly bitter. full body, creamy, average carbonation, long finish.

TorbenJensen (1528) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2015
Beautiful creamy and persistent foam. The aroma is caramel, nuts and a little roasted malt together form a pleasant brown ale aroma. The taste is rich with a comfortable sweetness, a hint of nut and caramel while hops bitterness is a little too aggressive for a brown ale. Extremely delicious and rich.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2012
Brown ale brewed with Danish blind society appears with blank white labels in Braille, which reads information about the beer. color is red brown and the foam nice and off-white. The beer has a sweet hoppy aroma (probably some English hops) and a dull hop flavor. there is not much brown ale over it.

Camons (12450) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2011

trapez (1563) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle. Aroma of malt, caramel and fruit. Brown colour with beige head. Spicy and sweet flavour with plenty of caramel and a refreshing hops finish.

Koelschtrinker (20419) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Säuerlich malziger, dazu passend getreidiger Antrunk. Im Mittelteil wird die Verbindung der beiden Aromen etwas intensiver, dazu stößt eine rauchige Komponente. Mittelintensiv, kurzzeitig ist eine leichte Whiskeynote auszumachen, die sich dann aber in der Trockenheit verliert. Zum Ende sind die Aromen breiter und wirken behäbiger. 6/7/7/7/6/7
