As I've only had one or two each of purple and gold this might be a 
difference in flavor of the individual varieties, rather than of the 
color overall.

for the most part. I gave up on raspberries because the place is 
covered with virus-hosting blackcaps, and even supposedly-resistant 
varieties all gave out after a few years. The blackcaps are good,
