From what I just read, caradamom is more like nutmeg or cinnamon in taste. To me, coriander tastes much more earthy with citrus notes, like sage mixed with citrus zest.

So, I'm afraid that these aren't anywhere close to the same thing, beyond both starting with a C. You are going to end up with a drinkable beer, but it isn't going to taste like it has coriander in it.

Did you literally grab the container next to the coriander, in alphabetical order?

What style beer is this (or is it supposed to be)?

yep i figure they are distinct in there own ways. yes i literally grabbed wrong bag next to the corriander, we'll see how it turns out.

its like a honey ale/belgian white beer. i use corriander juniper and sweet orange peel with clove honey. i have been trying to get ahold of other types of honey. its a nice light beer, goes good with pizza or pasta a honey ale is the first beer that really turned me many years ago.

A honey ale with a hint of some cinnamon/nutmeg sounds pretty good. Sounds like it is going to taste more like a typical Winter Beer. The honey flavor should contrast the caradamom nicely. So you may just want to see what happens, and become the new resident pro on using caradamom.

If you really want to keep this in the Belgian style, it may be worth trying to still get the corriander in there.

Crush the corriander seeds and either "dry hop" in a muslin bag for 4-5 days in primary, or make a corriander tea from crushed seeds in some boiling water, cool, and rack on top of it in either the bottling bucket or secondary bucket. Not as good as getting it in the boil, but you'll get a proper hint of the flavor in there.

Cardamom sounds awesome in a beer. Good mistake!

Same! As long as it was green and not black...

How much did you put in? It's very strong. You might have to get some out...

FYI, I recently brewed a wheat beer with some honey malt and Wildflower honey. Compared to clove honey, it leaves a bit more sweeteness and some light floral notes. It is certainly much more interesting than clove honey, which just seems to ferment out and not add much besides ABV. Team wildflower honey up with a recipe with honey malt, and it makes a noticable contribution. I got the wildflower honey at my local whole foods store for $6.99 for 2 lbs.
