Default White stuff on belgian white

Hey guys,
When I opened my secondary today getting ready to bottle I found that on top of the beer there were a couple of spots of a white kinda waxy substance floating. I was wondering if anyone has seen this before, and how bad it was. The beer smelled normal and tasted pretty good as well. Any advice?
Thanks

Probably just yeast then. I wouldn't worry.

Thanks. I was just a little concerned as I haven't seen that before. I'm kinda crazy about sanitation. If it doesn't kill me I'll go ahead and share it with my friends.

Have you used this yeast before? Every fermentation may be different, but different strains exhibit some pretty wildly different behavior, too. Some of them are just plain odd looking.
