Bad tasting raspberries

Hello, I’m looking for advice on bad tasting raspberries. The plants and fruit look fine however they taste like metal! I put well rotted manure on them in spring and other than water during the hot weather, I have left them to their own devices. What has gone wrong?

with thanks.

    Do you know what variety they are?
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Nutrient imbalance in the soil?

    I’m afraid I dont, they came with the house! I’ve worked out they are autumn fruiting as they are just ripening now. Perhaps need to rip them out and start again?
