I definitely don't recall any honey notes, there were notes of fruitiness, but in the end I don't think citrus really stood out. You could bump up the amounts of bitter orange peel, although, I've had better results using fresh orange zest (in my Witbiers). I've only used zest from your typical supermarket orange, but I bet you could get some more interesting aroma if you can get your hands on some more exotic type of oranges.

Was drinking this after 3, maybe 3 1/2 months.
ok thanks. I think I will use 3787. I can get fresh bitter orange from latin market.

Thanks for the good tips. I will try one or the other in the summer when I can get my hands on the yeast again and brew this again!

To make the 2.5 lbs of inverted sugar, what was the proportions of sugar (2.5 lbs) to water to acid?

Sorry, that is somewhat new to me so I am curious how you do this and how it affects FG I made a Karmeliet-style Belgian and it was 1.091 and even after a secondary pitch of WLP001 I was only able to get it down to 1.023 (original pitch of WLP550 only made it down to 1.027). It wasn't dry enough IMO. Looking for ways to help bring it down in future Belgian recipes.

Is this process of using inverted sugar (or dissolved candi sugar) as a late addition to the fermenter after initial fermentation is kicked into high gear detailed in any literature that you have seen?
