Default GrandCru Midwest Kit - Fruit Additions?

First time poster, so thanks in advance for the input.

Im brewing an extract kit: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/grand-cru.html
Which sounds similar to a belgian wit beer but involving honey and a higher final ABV. Ive brewed the midwest Belgian Wit Kit in the past which turned out quite good, but i would like to put a spin on this one so they are not too similar. Could anyone recommend a fruit addition to this beer? And if so how would you go about it, ive never tried adding fruit during the brewing process.

There's a great BYO article here about adding fruit to brews.

With lighter flavors like honey you may want to go with a lighter flavor like peach so it doesn't drown out the other flavors.

Welcome to the site, by the way!
