Your recipes are looking good. I did a Belgian dubbel that turned out okay. Home made candi sugar/syrup is the way forward!
Totally agree with you regarding wort samples - to me they taste like tea! In this case I was actually referring to the wort (technically I suppose it isn't wort as it's been fermented) from the yeast starter, which had really picked up some of that lovely Belgian yeast character.
