|Possibly I0806, A QLB man with Bell Beaker burial, Corded Ware axe [lda-lsa]|
The man described in the [paper]:
"Another group of six graves was discovered at Quedlinburg reference site VII and attributed to the Bell beaker culture based on form and orientation of the burials32. We included a >50 year old male individual buried in an extreme flexed position."
QLB28/I0806 (feature 19617, 2296-2206 calBCE, MAMS 22820)
I don't know if this man is QLB28/I0806; he doesn't look to be in the extreme flexed position, but he is definitely from the same QLB cemetery and was scheduled to be DNA tested. Harald Meller, an author of the paper, appears to be associated with this dig.

I believe this article describes the DNA extraction in 2010 [in German]. The mixed cultural features of his grave is the reason why he was selected to be tested. As the article mentions, this man has a Corded Ware shaft-hole axe, seen below.

and a perfect bell beaker:

Reading various sources on the Quedlinburg plots, it appears many of the graves either have mixed contexts or intrude into older cemeteries. The Haak paper mentions this, so does the lda-lsa website and several papers.
I mentioned this dilemma on my blog and at Eurogenes before, warning that the Middle-Saale Beakers will look artificially closer to an archetypal Corded person than they should. Obviously, the Corded traits survived Beaker encroachment which became grafted into the local Beaker culture. This will be true in many places.
Also, I don't know that all 69 individuals genetically tested were ever the subject of a concerted academic effort to begin with, where all 39 authors walked out the door holding hands. As it seems with these Beakers, they were already being tested to help understand their mixed archaeological features. (And it is important to emphasis mixed, like a salad, not fused, per se.)
Personally, I interpreted some of the maternal DNA as looking more Corded Ware/Farmer than Iberian Bell Beaker, so they may be a literal combination of Beaker men and Corded women, or whatever. I doubt that "Ancestral North Eurasian" will be as large a component in fringe Beakers as it is in Corded people, but who knows. Of course identifying a Beaker profile is a catch-22. Beakers intermingled with everyone, everywhere. So everyone may be "half-Beaker" everywhere.
