Protein rest 120+F for 30 minutes, Mash 150F for 90 minutes. Boil for 60 minutes, adding 3 pounds honey, 2 pounds DME (enough to raise gravity to 1.050) and 1 ounce Hallertauer. In last 15 minutes of boil add half of cardamon and half of coriander, and another 1/2 ounce of Hallertauer. In last 5 minutes of boil add remaining cardamon and coriander and orange peel. In last 2 minutes of boil add 1/2 ounce Hallertauer. Chill and pitch a Belgian ale yeast, such as the one newly offered by Wyeast,or culture some yeast from a fresh bottle of Chimay.

Note: Crack the cardamom shell and lightly crush the coriander seed. Strain them out before moving wort to the fermenter. The cardamom is not a traditional spice for this beer, so leave it out if you prefer.
