Description 

Unlike the somewhat bland sweet orange peel sold in grocery stores, bitter orange peel (Aurantii Amarae pericarpium) is ideal for flavoring Belgian-style ales and holiday beers. Use 1/8 - 1/2 oz. per 5 gallons, adding during the last 15 minutes of the boil. In dried sliced form. 1 oz. package

Okay if it's all you can get.
Pros: These dried orange peels are the real thing called for in many wheat beers, Belgians, Christmas ales, etc. They'll give you some desired flavor, if you don't have access to a fresher source. You don't need a lot because most of the citrusy taste in such recipes comes from the coriander, believe it or not.

Cons: Though you're supposed to use dried peels, these are VERY dried-out and most of the distinctive oil is gone. You'll get much better taste by zesting fresh bitter oranges and air-drying them yourself, similar to making marmalade.
