Which Taste Sense Does Vinegar Fall Under?

michele cindy | Nov 11, 2008 03:22 AM

My daughter often says things taste "sour" to her. This is mostly when something is vinegary. I know the different tastes senses are bitter, sweet, sour, salty, & more recent unami, so where does vinegary fall into these? She may be right, but It doesn't feel like sour to me, but doesn't seem to go with the others either. What's the correct category?
