I've force carbonated my keg of Dead Guy Ale and noticed it had the green apple taste (10 days primary, 20 days secondary). It's already in the fridge, but should I be cautious of raising the temperature in order to age it properly?

Also, can a carbonated beer be aged as well when it is uncarbonated?

Actually I believe the the presence of CO2 HELPS conditioning of bottles, kinda of like a "scrubbing." So yeah, give it a few weeks and check back on it.
