Air con leak?

My Alfa 156 air con doesnt work. The mechanic connected the red hose to the air con "port". As he turned the knob to let the gas go into the system a mist rushed out at the front of the bumper. Whats happening and is this easy to repair?

Hopefully it was nitrogen that pished out under test as he shouldnt admit refrigerant into an untested system.

Its you condenser or possibly a pipe/ union at fault. Easy ish job but the parts are dealer only.
