Liquid, obviously the soda is liquid.

Gas, the carbonation that causes the bubbles and the fizzing sound.

Solid, the straw. 

It also changes from a solution to a heterogeneous mixture.  The bubbles change throughout the can as it is opened and all of the gas is mixed into the soda.

There is a lot of bubbles that comes out of the can of soda, and it makes a sizzling sound or pop sound. This phenomenon is due to the process called carbonation, which happens in the can.
