i think the amount of bitter orange peel and bittering hops was too much. probably should have strained the orange peel off the boil and not have put it in the primary. guess i will just have to see if it mellows out after 2-3 weeks in secondary.

wait until it's conditioned. carbonation can change a beer dramatically. my last wit tasted bitter before bottling but it was delicious from the bottle
