Default Apple beer?

Ok so me and my wife went to a local pub. She fell in love with an apple beer. However it tasted a little like wine or hard cider? Any ideas to what it was. I asked the waitress but she seemed a lil clueless

Probably Hard Apple Cider, which is just fermented Apple Cider (no other additions). I made some last fall...interesting but not really my cup of tea.

If it was beer, they may have directly added apples, or used apple juice, which seems to be more common.

I make an apple wheat that I add sliced apples to directly. If you are interested, I can post the recipe.

hey airborneguy! post up a recipe for the slice appled wheat. never had good luck with apples. bananna & clove still dominate through, but still want that flavor. been looking for a fruit cocktail wheat for ages! jest cant get the right blend tried apple, pineapple, kiwi, strawberry & peach. Peach came closest.
