I once made a parti gyle brew where the second runnigs were super low, so I added dark Belgian style candi syrup that was equal to about 80% of the grist. Added hops and Belgian yeast to make about a 4% ABV Belgian Pale Ale. It had no malt flavor and did not taste like beer. Watery with a hint of alcohol and caramel.
Belgian style beers are known to contain up to 20% sugar or invert sugar, but personally I like to keep it to about 10% max when I use sugar in the grain bill.
