Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Justin blew a .04.  That would not automatically make him a drunk driver -- IF he were 21 or older.  But Justin is 19, and Florida has a zero tolerance for underage drinkers who drive ... and if he blows higher than a .02 it's an automatic license suspension.  

Remember, he was arrested for DUI for both drugs and alcohol.  If booze and drugs impaired his driving -- even if it was just a sip of liquor -- he can be convicted of DUI.
