Did you remove the bolts completely?
Ok, there are washers between the bolt and the brake hose, and the hose and the caliper. If some dirt got in there or their position changed then it could be the problem. I would pull them off, clean up the washers and re install. This should stop the brake fluid from leaking. You have to be careful not to overtighten them because they will snap off. They are hollow inside, but if you clean the mating surfaces it should be safe and should solve the problem.

Yes, either under the brake hose or between the bolt head and the hose.
