all you belgian tripel fans

just bottled my belgian tripel. smells fruity and estery. without carbonation it tastes alot like white wine/cabernet, is this proper? my og was 1.080 and it fermented down to 1.010. I added a little over 1/2 cup priming sugar for a 3 gallon batch which is normal, but i have heard that for this style maybe i should be using more sugar if i have strong enough bottles.

3 gallons
7# lbs belgian pilsner malt
1.5# wheat
1# belgian candi sugar
.75 hallertau
.5 saaz
.5 saaz
white labs trappist yeast
