12oz can from Brewers Haven. Pale golden, small fizzy head. Pickle aroma, cucumbers, tart. Taste continues, more pickle, brine, dill , citrus and jalapeno with a nice tartness.

these keep getting weirder and weirder, in the last couple of weeks i have had an indian masala one, a peanut butter and jelly one, and now this one, done with pickle juice, pineapple, and jalapeno, its amazing what they have been able to do with the series, and this is weirdly drinkable, like i could have more than one, which is crazy for a beer this flavored. its about as sour as the others, citrusy and tangy but not overly acidic. its pale yellow and cloudy, without much head but less flat and sediment filled than many of the others. the jalapeno is bold in the nose, fresh and natural and in front of the pickle elements, which have some obvious dill and vinegar happening, juicy and herbal and appealing, the pineapple may add some sweetness but its very subtle here, as well as in the flavor, not a real obvious element at any point. its a little spicy to drink, but the pepper and the sourness do cool things together, and there really is a dill pickle flavor here. thankfully there is enough wheat underneath these flavors for this to still taste and feel like a beer, which i think has been the great success of the series, as much as they are all bizarre and boldly flavored, they still taste like beer through and through, makes it less of a gimmick to me, and way more appealing. the dill is there, i swear i get bits of garlic, dried red chili, and even black pepper, like all the pickle elements are here. fresh green jalapeno and the pucker to finish, and decent carbonation moving it along. really cool beer overall, never had anything quite like this, and its one i would love to drink again, which i cant say for all of them. this series keeps getting more and more interesting!
