Default What would cause this?

I made a Triple Berry Melomel. It has been in the bottle for roughly 5 months.
I poured a glass of it tonight and there seems to be a very light soapy, sudsy ring aroun the glass.
It isnt carbonated at all.
WHat waould cause this?

Just to ask the obvious, did you wash your bottles with soapy water, and possibly not rinsed well enough?
