This is the first time I see an adjective describing a noun. If you put it after the noun does it lose the verb and stop meaning "to be clever"?

That's right; if one of those stative verbs like "be clever" stands after the noun, it acts like an adjective, and you would translate it as just "clever" (or "beautiful", "strong", etc.) rather than "is clever" or "be clever" etc.
