I've got some beer in the bottles and they are in the basement conditioning. Fermentation temps were about 70. However, since I bottled, we have had an early summer heat wave here in NC.

It's been in the upper 90s for about a week. The temps in the basement have been in the low 80s. Will these temps hurt the taste of the beer? I've read not to put beer in the fridge til a few days before drinking as this can stop the yeast from carbonating the beer. But, what about off flavors from the heat?

No..the heat problem only affects taste during the intial part of primary fermentation.

if it's in the low 80's in the basement you are fine...
