I like the character of rye, but I think if you were going to put it in a hefe, it would really show though. That's kind of counter-intuitive to what you are trying to brew since rye is quite spicy/cedary. For an easy drinker, i'd keep the malt bill as simple as possible for a hefe. That's just me though.

Modified it and subtracted the rye and added more caramel. Any thought to adding a tiny bit of roasted barely?

Boil your first decoction longer for a deeper color.
