Well, look at it this way. Do you know how you taste things? Taste bids (chemical receptors) on your tongue. It depends on the chemicals on your tongue, right? So the key is, how do you make your drink change flavor? If only the color changed, then the taste wouldn't have changed. But if you added a dye with a flavor or a chemical that the tongue can sense, then the taste would change. But you can't measure how the taste can change.

I suggest you to drop this experiement, because there's no way to say this is more sour than this, because you can't taste something and measure how sour it is. The taste is affected by what you drank before, how much water in your mouth, etc.

Try another topic related to color or taste. I think color would be easier. How about does the color of a liquid affect its ability to absorb heat?
