The fact that it tastes less "like a wheat beer" now almost assuredly means that it was just yeast that was slow to flocculate. One thing wheat beers taste is yeasty -- I'm betting you initially had some yeast still suspended & it took time to all flocculate out. The other thing wheat beers taste is phenolic which is some of those spice characteristics that come from certain yeast strains (including some of the English strains) and are more present when fermentation is warm -- I'm betting you have more phenols in your beer than usual. These also diminish some over time, though only a little. Because you say it's now gone, I'm betting yeast settling was your main problem. The nice thing is that the solution was easy -- just wait.
