It's cider, so it may never clear. As for drinkable, that's up to you.

no doubt. I personally don't mind cloudy if it tastes good.

I prefer a cloudy cider, because generally speaking the clearer it is, the less apple retention it has. For example my Drunken Emu Cider (sig) looks pretty much the same way coming out as it did going in.

Does the cream cheese wine look the same coming out as it did going in?
