If it was a GM, I would say it was a DEXCOOL special
Could be someone used the wrong type of coolant. Honda's are one brand where for the coolant, power steering, possibly transmission you generally need to buy their brand for that engine, per the manual.
There are too many types of coolant floating around, and you generally can't mix the types.
Possibly there is a leak from the ATF cooler built into the radiator, pushing ATF into the antifreeze, not sure if possible on that model or not.
