IDK why you don't just bottle it.

But if you don't want to package it, I would transfer to a secondary if you're leaving it for a total of 4 months.

What kind of wheat beer is it? A bock? Wheats don't need to go that long either. You'll start to lose the yeast character after a while. But you should definitely move it to a carboy if you have your heart set on it. Or bottle. +1 to each of those.
