Default Do you think I messed up too bad?

I did a batch this weekend

5.00 kg Pilsner (2 Row) Ger (3.9 EBC) Grain 1
250.0 g Acid Malt (5.9 EBC) Grain 2
400.0 g Carafoam (3.9 EBC) Grain 3
450.0 g Vienna Malt (6.9 EBC) Grain 4
1.00 kg Carahell (25.0 EBC) Grain 5
450.0 g Corn Sugar (Dextrose) (0.0 EBC) Grain 6
28.3 g Saaz [4.0%] - Boil 60 min Hops 7
28.3 g Hallertauer [4.8%] - Boil 15 min Hops 8
1.00 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 15 min) Misc 9
1 pkgs Belgian Golden Ale (White Labs #WLP570) Yeast 10

My basement normally will keep my beer at 66 +- so I wanted to keep this batch a little warmer and put an old sleeping bag around it Sunday Evening after I added the yeast. Tuesday morning I checked the temp and it was 81! So I took the bag off to let it cool down a bit.

The temp range is supposed to be 68-75°F (20-24°C). So I over shot that for 36 or more hours... wondering if I did damage or maybe some good with these temps?

Any thoughts!

81 isn't enough to hurt the yeast, but it will stress them out. They probably put out some interesting flavors. Should be fine, but a bit estery.
