At the power steering reservoir there are two hoses one carries fluid to the steering pump and the other returns fluid. If the hoses are old and brittle due to heat in the engine compartment or just old age try replacing the hose clamps but the leak is more likely to be a high pressure hose, a leak at the steering rack (check the steering rack boots at each end of the rack from under the car) or the pump its self may be leaking. Remember Acura use a special power steering fluid make sure the fluid you are using is compatable for use in your Acura.
