Such a great time or such great time

Hello, in Access 4 companion book (express publishing) there is an exercise. And says there We had ........ great time

The correct answer in the answer key is such a

But in theory it says we use such a/an + countable noun


or

such + uncountable noun


So which one is correct?
such or cuch a?

    In this sentence, "time" is countable. The hour we spent at the carnival was such a great time. The time we went to the ballgame and the time we went to the beach were great times.
