Yes, it will clear in time. Did you use any pectic enzyme? That'll not only help to breakdown the cell walls in the fruit & thereby promote better juice/flavour extraction, it'll also help to clear; even though it's not really a fining agent. Just give it time & it should clear just fine. Regards, GF.
