If you're drinking a dry beverage (like wine or apfelwein) there isn't any sugar to speak of. It's the alcohol, and in high temperature fermentations, you'll get more fusel alcohols which will give you a rip roaring headache and/or hangover.
I NEVER get hangovers from homebrew. I drink quite a number of beers and never a headache. Two commercial beers, though, and I could be in trouble.
