Default Possible to Culture Yeast from Great Divide Hades?

Has anyone tried to culture yeast from a bottle of Great Divide's Hades Ale? It's a Belgian, with a pretty complex flavor. It's also very, very clear. They mention on the bottle that it's a fairly rare strain of yeast, so I wonder if they left any in there. Thoughts?

I didn't see any yeast on the bottom when I tried it here in GA: and the bottles of it here would be much older then what you can get in Denver. I don't think there's enough yeast in there to harvest.

That's what I was thinking; it looked pretty crystal clear.
