Default Problem with hefe wiezen

A couple of weeks ago, i made a hefeweizen, I used wb-06. I have a modified fridge fror fermentation, i had it at 65 degrees, but 1 night I messed up and it droped to almost 40, the fermentation stoped. Next day I warmed it and the fermentation continued. Right now is bottled almost 3 weeks, but i has no banana or clove, and its a bit acid. Is this the result of that cold night?

I'm not familiar with that yeast but my best guess is this is a result of pitching too much yeast. Was this a 5 gallon batch and did you only pitch one pack of yeast?
