Looks like coolant. Have you checked your fluid levels?

Steam. I wasn't thinking at the time I wrote this, I was just in a horrible mood.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I need to get a Chilton for this car stat.

just take off the hose, bring it to either a general auto parts store, or a local audi dealer and grab a new hose.
