When does refrigerated juice go bad?

I opened a bottle of cranberry juice on December 20, 2010; the sell-by date is August 2011, but of course, now it's open and in the fridge. Is it too late to drink from it???

      As long as you didn't drink directly from the bottle or otherwise introduce bacteria into it, it should be fine.
      Take a small sip and see if it tastes OK. If not then toss it.

        If it isn't moldy, slimy or bubbly (fermented), drink it.
