I would leave out most of the caramalt (maybe leave 4oz in), double the sugar, and use a proper Belgian yeast. I like White Labs 500, but whatever your friendly local homebrew shop has in stock from the WL5XX selection or this guide from Wyeast:

...should work a lot better than S-33. Even T-58 is a more authentic strain.

Oh my, the absence of bitterness is one of my favorite characteristic of tripels. I will seek out your example for sake of comparison.

Just had an Allagash Tripel to accompany the Final 4 (game1). What a beer!
Going in search of info about their yeast...
