Taste test: These crisps looked almost identical to the Feta & Black Olive flavor, with round, Popchips-like shapes and a grayish color, so there was no sea of green to give them that pickle or dill look that you would expect.
Nor were there even any bits of dill that we could find. Holding a piece before crunching in, we could feel some seasoning powder on the surface. When we crunched in, that lack of green didn't much matter, as there was a nice mild dill pickle flavor to go along with a light crunch and good crispness. Although the pickle taste was on the mild side, the bean taste was considerably weaker, so it was hard to even notice the taste of the underlying crisps. We shared these with many snackers and received many thumbs-ups for the texture and taste.

Smell test: Good pickle smell. Not super-strong, but it does smell like a pickle jar.
