I did a similar--though not GF version of this and am just now, tonight, taking the first sip of it; so this is a pretty providential post.
Here was my recipe:
1 lbs flaked wheat
1lb belgian biscuit
4.5 lbs liquid wheat malt extract
.5 oz magnum
1 oz cascade
1 tbls orange peel powder
1 tbls coriander powder
4 gallons apple juice
Belgian Abbey yeast. (1214?)
I did the normal deal and added the coriander and Orange right before bottling. OG was 1.060, FG 1.012, ABV: 6-7%
It tastes good, but I definitely used too much hops. So, from looking at your recipe, you might be in a similar boat. Don't get me wrong, I L.O.V.E. hops, but they just aren't blending as well with the cider--sort of like drinking apple juice after you brush your teeth.
It smells like rising bread mixed with orange and hops, and has a decent overall taste, despite the hops. VERY belgian beerish-- with the fruity, slightly sour yeast. I think it needs another month or so in the bottle to both dissipate out the hops and let the flavors meld a bit.
