slow coolant leak

Hey all, I was changing the drag link on my 2000 Excursion PSD the other day and noticed what looked like a leak. On closer examination I saw some greenish drips on the hose under my truck. Anyone have a similar issue? What am I looking at here?

Loose hose clamp?

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

Either coolant OR a/c system dye, pressure test cooling system or add dye to coolant and check if you can get your hands on a uv light,you can check both
