I found this quite nice, although not as sweet as sorbet should be (in my opinion). Sorbet should be very tangy (and this was excellent), but still leave a sweet after taste. This is by no means a criticism as sweetness/bitterness is purely a personal taste. Overall, this sorbet is probably the nicest I've ever had. It beats commercial sorbet hands down. I didn't use the rinds at all as I don't like the flavour, so I used an extra lemon instead, squeezed into the boiling sugar solution. I'd seen this done in other recipes. Thanks for posting this!
