Frozen berries are sweeter?

It is said that Alaskan berries are said to be sweeter after they freeze. Is this true? I am having a hard time finding any hard evidence to prove as to why this might be, but many articles talk about how this seems to be true, with out a scientific reason. I imagine it must have to do with the crystallization of the sugars in the berry. One article references another article to say that the frosting of brussel sprouts causes an increase in sugars in the cell. BE Fairbanks
