Default put flavoring hops in way early, what result?

All,

I've got my second batch going. It had a 55 min boil. I was supposed to but bittering hops in at the start and flavoring hops 10 min from the end.

Unfortunately I put both in at the start.

It's witbier kit. Any idea how bad I screwed up?

Thanks

You will wind up with a more bitter beer with less hop flavor and aroma than intended. You could pick up some additional aroma hops and do a dry hop after fermentation to make up some of the loss. It won't be the same beer but it will still be great!

Probably not at all, wits are hopped at such a low rate that I doubt it will matter.
