Default Summertime Belgian Wit

Well my first brew back in January was a kit weizenbeer, but it's almost gone, and I'm a big wheat fan. It had a bit of extract twang to it, and was good, but not great.

So I'm designing my own recipe, for a belgin wit style:
5lb Wheat DME
1oz Liberty pellet for 60min
1oz coriander seed
1oz bitter orange peel

Pretty standard? Anything I'm missing, doing wrong, or could do to spice it up a bit? Don't know when i'll brew it, as my summer is up in the air, but it'll get brewed for sure.

Try fresh orange zest instead of the dry peel, and throw a chamomile tea bag in too.

Also, what yeast?

And is liberty a good choice in hop?

I think Liberty is a Hallertau off shoot and there shouldn't be much hop presence anyway, so it should be fine.
