First off, lagers are more difficult to brew than ales, so you're doing well if you're doing light lagers well. As far as the recipe you linked, it only looks expensive (to me) on two counts: first, a tripel is a big beer, requiring more grain, and secondly, there's a lot of adjuncts that add to the price (coriander, orange peel, sugar, etc).

I, personally, don't care for all the adjuncts (and my opinion means nothing). If you want to lower cost, a nice dubbel might only use brewer's sugar as an adjunct. But if this is a recipe that appeals to you, I don't think it would be too expensive. If there's a club in your area, you could probably share the cost of the adjuncts or even get some for free from brewers that have some in the pantry.
