Default over carbed bottled beer

I have a blonde ale that just finished 3 weeks in the bottle it taste fine but is over carbed. Do you think this is an infection or maybe I just over shot the priming sugar or the temperature changes or what? It does not have any off flavor taste just like a blonde should taste but with 4 inches of foam & 2 inches of beer.

Do they start foaming as soon as you un-cap them? or just when you pour?

Maybe chill them down for a day or two and un-cap then recap them to alleviate some of the built-up pressure...

Revvy has a thread concerning this. IIRC let it sit for a few more weeks, it will help hold the CO2 in suspension for less foaming during the pour.
