Looks like wheat beer

I think there are a couple of mistakes in your recipe though: (dry/syrup), (Wheat 55% Wheat/45% Barley)

You might want to go with all 5 lbs as wheat extract (since it's already a mix) to get your wheat percentage up over 50%.

It's all dry. It's 55% wheat/45% barley.

You might consider swapping some of the light extract for wheat extract and then making your mini-mash with a 1-to-1 ratio of pilsner to wheat. Wheat needs help converting its sugar and a 2-to-1 ratio is kinda pushing it.
