I would not do that last hops. With a weizen you don't want to smell the hops like you would in a Pale.

This beer isn't weizen, its American wheat. Big difference IMO...

Yes but because it does not use the Weizen yeast I think he's saying that it's not.

Oh ok I see. Well I brewed this up on Monday night, using 6# wheat DME (55/45), .5oz whole cascade 7% (60 min), 4 oranges and 4 lemons zest added with 15 min. left in boil, then at 5 minutes to go i added .25oz santiam pellets 4.6%, cooled to 70 in 25 min. w/ ice bath and pitched 1 packet Nottingham's. Its weird the wort was a lot darker than I was expecting it to be almost as dark as my brown ale, but as i started cooling it after the boil it began to slowly get lighter in color. Now after 2 days in primary it has lightened dramatically and looks more like a Weizen. When I was done brewing it up the wort smelled like a box of fruit loops! Thanks for posting the recipe FSR!

Yeah it's funny how much thw wort changes as it ferments and becomes beer.

I have 10 gallons of a spiced Wit fermenting next to 10 gallons of an APA. Both brewed the same day and right now they look the same. When brewed the APA was dark. With every day they get lighter.

Should I pull out the orange and lemon zest before the primary or leave it in thoughout fermentation? I don't want the lemon to overpower everything.

Filter it out as you rack to the fermenter.
