I found this comment on-line in a foraging forum: "Having worked in a garden center I can reliably say that every bloody color and variety produces a different tasting berry. Some are really nice, some are totally tasteless and some have a very unpleasant aftertaste. Your best bet is to taste every bush you come across, although I did find that the uglier the flower (the big frilly white ones spring to mind) the nicer the berry."

Don't forget the flowers are edible, too. When eating the flower - generally the sepals are fleshier and milder. The petals and rest of the flower inside are more bitter.
