While the juice started out real clear, it is now quite cloudy. Still giving off CO2. Taste is actually quite bland, alcoholly. Kinda expected that actually but was hoping for a more apple flavor.
The drier it gets, the less apple flavor will be apparent. That's why I like my draft style cider around 1.010 - semi dry, not really sweet, but some apple flavor. But, if you age dry cider, the apple flavor tends to come back.
