Hello. Brake hoses tend to leak only when they are cut by some sort of road debris. The brake hose has several layers on it because of the safety factor involved with brakes. It is possible for the line to be leaking where it meets with the caliper. This is a bit more common and can be repaired by replacing the crush washer that acts on the seal between them. A qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, can inspect the brake fluid leak and bleed the system to make sure no air bubbles are trapped in the lines.
