When brewing a Belgian, what is the difference between using clear candy sugar and just using straight table sugar? I don't really understand the chemical differences between the two, nor how/if they react differently during fermentation. I can understand how a dark candy sugar will give different flavors than clear candy sugar, but is clear candy really that different that plain table sugar?

Well, Had I not been so lazy before the post, I would have found that a search would have turned up this thread, which pretty much answers my own question.
