Default Acetaldehyde taste

I have a Belgian tripel OG/FG 1.080/1.013 which spent 28 days in primary followed by three day cold crash and bottle conditioned. I used 6 oz corn sugar by weight. Opened my first one tonight after 41 days and it is sweet apple cider.

It was outstanding before bottling. Nothing like the final product. I wanted it to be effervescent but too much sugar? Is this something that will clear over any amount of time?

6oz of sugar sure is a lot. i'v never used more than 3.75oz. there's not a whole lot you can do but wait for 2 more weeks and and drink that very effervescent beer. should mellow out

watch out for bursting bottles.
